Fresh Figs wrapped in Prosciutto
with Blue Cheese
While I was walking through Whole Foods the other night, they were packing up the fruits and vegetables for the day. Out of the corner of my eye, already on the dolly to go into the back, were these gorgeous, fresh figs. I snagged them and ran back through the store to get blue cheese and prosciutto before the store closed. Great idea!
There is something about this dish; the sweetness of the fig, the creaminess of the blue cheese, and the salty crunch of the prosciutto. It’s marvelous!

Prosciutto, thinly sliced (number of slices need to match the number of figs), halved
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Quarter each fig, leaving the bottom still attached.
Put about a square centimeter of blue cheese in the center of each. Close fig.
Wrap each fig with a slice of prosciutto.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until prosciutto is crispy.
Serve warm, halved or whole. (Alex obviously ate them whole, and the ladies halved!)
