Hot Fig Appetizer

Hot Fig Appetizer
  • Sharebar

I’ve made this as a cold appetizer in the past, but this time around I made it hot and served it as a side salad. It was super delicious and now I can’t decide if I like it better hot or cold.

Hot Fig

Ingredients

  • 4 fresh figs
  • Prosciutto, one slice per fig
  • Fresh goat cheese (or cheese of your choice, or leave it off if you don’t do any dairy)
  • Fresh salad greens, I used rucola
  • Balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  1. Start at the top pointy end of your figs and cut a cross in them. Cut about half way down and then grab the fig and squeeze it a bit to get the cross to open.
  2. Wrap a piece of Prosciutto around the base of the fig.
  3. Place a small chunk of goats cheese into the opening that was made by cutting the cross in the fig.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and broil for about 5 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.

  1. For any Americans reading this recipe, “rucola” is the same as arugula.

    • Thanks Karli :-)

  2. I did this for New Years Eve dinner but did use green figs instead of black ones and I think I left them in the oven too long, as we were having Glühwein…. But the flavour was amazing!
    Thanks

    • Happy New Year Verena! I’ve never had green figs before. Drinking Glüwein (or any wine!) while cooking usually results in a kitchen disaster for me. I get busy drinking and chatting and forget that I’m cooking ;-)
