A Quick Snack…Figs + Goat Cheese

I’ve recently been so obsessed with figs. Two weekends ago, I went to an Italian restaurant in the North End and had these amazing broiled figs that were stuffed with goat cheese. They were presented on a bed of prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic glaze. I couldn’t get them out of my mind so I decided to make my own version. I had to make do because I didn’t have prosciutto or balsamic glaze, but they still satisfied my craving. I served them with fresh raspberries and orange slices and a bowl of olives garnished with a drizzle of olive oil and flaky sea salt.

Honey Walnut Figs

Total time: 15 minutes

Serves: 2-6 people

Ingredients:

  • 5 figs, cut in half
  • 1 log plain goat cheese (honey goat cheese would pair nicely too)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 10 walnuts (one for each fig half)

Instructions:

  • Set the oven to broil
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Cut each fig in half and lay on the baking sheet with the inside facing up
  • Spread goat cheese on the inside of every fig
  • Gently press a walnut into the goat cheese on top of every fig
  • Heat up the honey in the microwave or on the stove
  • Drizzle the honey over all the figs
  • Place the baking sheet into the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the goat cheese is bubbling
  • Enjoy!
