Ready In:




  • Preheat the broiler. Brush the bread slices on both sides with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper.
  • Lay the bread slices on a baking sheet and place it as close to the heat source as possible. Broil the bread until golden brown on one side, about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn the slices over and broil for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, until browned.
  • Lay the prosciutto on the bread slices, cutting it if necessary to fit. Toss the figs with balsamic vinegar and place on top of prosciutto. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and garnish with thyme if desired and serve at once (so the toast doesn't turn soggy).

    Absolutely delightful! I love fresh figs, but I don't always have a lot of ideas as to what to do with them. Now I know! The sweetness of the fig marries perfectly with the saltiness of the prosciutto. This was really a great treat, and I will be enjoying it again while figs are still in season. Thanks for posting this. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game.

    I don't usually do much food prep with fresh figs, but once in a while I get the urge, 'cause I do enjoy the taste of the fresh fruit! This is one of those very satisfying recipes, easy to make & a pleasure to eat ~ The prosciutto & figs go together so well! Thanks for a great recipe keeper!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
