Oh, yum -- I can tell I'm going to fall off my diet wagon over these! Our fig tree in the back yard just burst into full, fulsome fruit, and we are overwhelmed with figs. This recipe is just perfect! We experimented with several different types of cheeses -- I prefer the blues, my husband prefers the manchegos and ibericos. The directions are incredibly easy to follow, so simples and so good. We served it this evening with Light Turkey Schnitzel, zucchini, and gnocchi dressed with an artichoke-lemon pesto. So good!
These were amazing! I made them a bit different; I cut my figs in 1/2, added some blue cheese and wrapped them in Prosciutto and baked for 10 minutes. I did lose some of the cheese but I scraped it off and put it on top of the figs. This is a keeper; thanks.
Used Manchengo, blue might be better. Cooked them on my Green Egg. Never had a fresh fig before yesterday. Loved by all.
These were really good, the salt of the proscuitto nicely balances the fresh ground pepper. Make sure you use good quality blue cheese so that flavor comes through as well. I cooked mine on the grill in a pan that slightly lifted the figs off the grates.
Im really sorry but this was awful, I made two lots to make sure I had it right and all it did was waste my figs.
I made this for a party and added a basil leaf (wrapped just before the prosciutto) to the recipe. OH MY WORD. Just wonderful.Thanks.
With the exception of some wonderful homemade preserves a friend has given us several times, we'd never eaten figs. Honestly, we weren't wild about them...BUT everyone went crazy over the rest of this interesting combo. We loved the blue cheese center and the prosciutto 'cocoon' and the great bite the pepper added. I had a dozen people sitting around my breakfast room table on Thanksgiving Day trying to figure out what else we could stuff and wrap. :) Since it turned out that we didn't care for one of the main ingredients, I felt it was fairer to offer a comment instead of a rating. If you like figs, I think you'll find this heavenly. Easy, too!
What a combination of flavors, absolutely fabulos!
These were so good and different - not ingredients I would normally put together but they go together so nicely! Made a very small batch just to try. Now I'll include them in my next party as appys! Oh, definitely use the black pepper, it does something special to these!
Simple to make for such wonderful flavor. Never would have thought to use fresh black pepper, so made a few without and everyone voted for the pepper. My DS even went to the market for more figs as she couldn't get her fill and wanted to make more.
