This is a very quick easy to put together recipe that is delicious. While figs are in season I will keep prosciutto and goat cheese in my fridge for this to be my go to appetizer for guest. My husband claims that he does not like figs but he ate these up and asked for more!
Roasted Figs & Prosciutto
8 large ripe figs
8 slices of prosciutto
2 Tbsp goat cheese – plain or flavored (I used premade balsamic onion goat cheese)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Remove the hard stems from the figs and cut the figs in half lengthwise. Cut the prosciutto lengthwise into inch wide strips. Take a fig half and place ¼ tablespoon of the goat cheese inside the center. Wrap a strip of prosciutto around the center of each fig half, with the ends overlapping. Place on baking sheet cut side up and lightly drizzle with olive oil.
Roast the figs for 10 minutes until the prosciutto is a little crisp and the figs are warmed through. Serve warm.
