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

  • 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.

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

  • *4 thin slices deli ham may be substituted.
