How to Make It

Step 1

Cut each fig in half vertically, cutting to, but not through, base of fig. Spread slightly apart. Place 1 cube of cheese inside each fig; gently close to seal. Wrap one prosciutto strip around each fig.

Step 2

Preheat grill.

Step 3

Combine vinegar and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until thick, about 10 minutes. Cool.

Step 4

Place figs on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until prosciutto is crisp. Drizzle each fig with balsamic syrup.

Ratings & Reviews

Just not good

August 14, 2017
Over all the years with my Cooking Light subscription, there have been very few recipes that I didn't like and this is one of them. I made them for a dinner party and I was really disappointed with them. I just didn't think the flavors went together. The blue cheese overpowered all the other flavors. I guess you could try a very mild blue cheese but I still don't think they'd be good. I wouldn't recommend these to anyone. I don't think anyone at my party liked them.
