Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs With Blue Cheese

Depending on brand and size, some figs may already have slits. Assemble these a few hours ahead, and broil them once guests arrive.

Recipe Time

Prep: 15 Minutes
Bake: 10 Minutes
Broil: 3 Minutes


16 whole almonds
4 thin slices prosciutto*
16 dried mission figs, trimmed
1/2 (4-oz.) package blue cheese, cut into 16 pieces
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt


1. Place almonds in a shallow pan.

2. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally.

3. Cut each prosciutto slice lengthwise into 4 thin strips. If necessary, make a small slit in center of each fig. Stuff each fig with 1 piece of blue cheese and 1 almond. Wrap 1 prosciutto slice around each fig, pressing to seal. Toss wrapped figs with oil, pepper, and salt; arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.

4. Broil figs 3 inches from heat 3 minutes or until prosciutto begins to crisp. Serve immediately.

*4 thin slices deli ham may be substituted.
