Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs With Blue Cheese

Prep time 15 mins
Bake time 10 mins
Broil time 3 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings
Depending on brand and size, some figs may already have slits. Assemble these a few hours ahead, and broil them once guests arrive.

Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make It

  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.

  5. *4 thin slices deli ham may be substituted.
