Delish Black Mission Figs!

Recipe by  

"When I lived in California, I couldn't wait until the farmer's markets had figs...big, juicy, amazing to eat! They are hard to find in Colorado, and are less flavorful than the ones in CA. So I came up with this little appetizer to showcase some of my favorite ingredients."

The addition of prosciutto sounds wonderful! Being that my paternal grampa was from Greece I highly recommend trying this recipe with Feta instead of goat cheese ;-) They taste awesome grilled too! One more tip for those who might like to try an additional flavoring is to whisk together an equal amount of honey and red wine vinegar for drizzling.

I made this recipe last night for dinner guests and it was a huge hit! Even those who have never had figs or thought they wouldn't like figs loved them. Three minor changes I made were 1) to use Panache Tiger Strip Fig 2) topped with diced thick sliced bacon instead of prosciutto and 3) I didn't drizzle with honey as the figs were juicy and sweet on their own. Truly delicious! Shared the recipe with friends; will definitely make this again.

Made this with feta and no honey. 5 minutes didn't quite soften/warm my figs. Next time will bake for 5 minutes, then broil for crispy prosciutto. Yummy fancy dinner for adult time with my husband :)

6:30 a.m. Just read this and had fresh figs on my kitchen counter (from my tree). Also had soft, mild cheese, bacon, honey. I immediately put everything together being as quiet as possible and enjoyed this little bit of heaven. And Deeli's honey/vinegar mix is genius!

Great taste! I whisked honey with equal parts of aged Balsamic vinegar for a sweet/tart finish and, being Greek, I used Feta.
