  1. Preheat grill for medium heat.
  2. Make a small incision in the bottom of each fig (large enough to hold pastry bag tip). Place goat cheese in pastry bag with plain tip. Fill figs with goat cheese by squeezing a small amount of cheese into the bottom of each fig. The figs will plump up when filled. Wrap each fig with a grape leaf, and skewer 2 to 3 figs on each skewer.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place fig skewers on hot grill. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, turning once. Drizzle with honey, and serve.

Outstanding recipe! I didn't have grape leaves so I used prosciutto instead to wrap the figs. Also, I used fresh rosemary from my garden as skewers. I bet these are great broiled but grilling th...

The grill was out of gas and I didn’t have grape leaves, so I broiled them on high (sans leaves) for 3 minutes with fabulous results.

Well, I tried this recipe on a dare. I'm a very picky eater. This turned out great, the taste was very unusual, but good. If you want to suprise someone with the ingredients of what they just a...
