Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Figs and Goat Cheese Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 oz soft goat cheese
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 24 fresh figs
  • 1/4 lb thinly sliced prosciutto
  • Olive oil for brushing and drizzling
  • Grilling skewers

Directions

  1. Combine goat cheese, rosemary, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl, and stir.
  2. Make a small slit in the bottom or side of each fig. Use a pastry bag to pipe cheese mixture into each fig through the slit. Fill figs with just enough cheese so they expand slightly.
  3. Tear or cut the prosciutto into long strips. Wrap a strip of prosciutto around each fig and skewer.
  4. Brush figs with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place fig skewers on a moderately hot grill. Rotate skewers until figs are very hot, and cheese starts to ooze (about 6 minutes).
  6. Remove from grill, and drizzle with olive oil. Serve immediately.
