Simple Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto

Figs in a Blanket: Better Than the Original

Figs are one of my favorite late Summer/early Fall fruits. Thus, after making bacon-wrapped dates, I looked for a similar recipe that used fresh figs. To my delight, I came across this recipe that combines figs, goat cheese, and prosciutto.

Inspired by the recipe but wanting to keep it simple, I came up with my take on the appetizer. Rather than heat up the house, I decided to throw these tasty little bites on the barbecue.

Although any variety of fig will work, I used Calimyrna and found that the easiest way to remove the flesh is with a melon baller. This delicious appetizer is perfect for a party because it can be prepped ahead of time and only requires a few minutes on the grill, so you won't miss any of the fun. With the salty prosciutto, sweet fig, and tangy goat cheese center, these nibbles are full of flavor and texture, and are sure to impress your guests.

Keep reading for the delightful recipe.
