PPROSCIUTTO WRAPPED CHEESE STUFFED BAKED FIGS

PROSCIUTTO WRAPPED CHEESE STUFFED BAKED FIGS

Figs are simply delish! They lend themselves so well to sweet and savoury dishes, dessert, starter or main, and everything in between. You can use any kind of creamy type cheese you have on hand, and I used one with garlic and herb flavourings so I didn't have mess with it too much (easy is best), and you can even make these well ahead. Once you've baked it off, drizzle the whole thing with a nice balsamic glaze and honey and you're done!

Here's what you'll need

  • 4 fresh figs
  • 1 250g package of cream cheese (anything you have on hand)
  • 8 slices of prosciutto
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 4 tbsp slivered almonds
  • 4 skewers
  1. prep the figs by cutting a them into quarters without going all the way through to the bottom and pry them open gently

  2. stuff a tbsp or so of cream cheese

  3. now wrap each fig with a couple of slices of the proscuitto and secure with skewers to help keep the slices attached

  5. pop them onto a baking tray and bake in a preheated 400° oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until the figs are soft, the proscuitto is crisp and the whole everything is nicely caramelized

  6. in the meantime, gently heat the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar together until reduced slightly and thickened

  7. in a dry frying pan, toast up your almonds over medium heat for a few minutes or until toasted and slightly coloured, then remove from the heat and set aside

  8. once the figs are ready, pop onto heated plates and drizzle with balsamic glaze and honey and sprinkle on the almonds
