I’m Throwing Down The Mic…
Oh yes I am!! Can I just tell you…This is hands down one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth!
The sweetness of the figs, the saltiness of the prosciutto, the crunch of the pecan and the tanginess of the goat cheese, need I say more?!
I swear, this is something you want to make, it is that good! And although it looks like an appetizer, you certainly can make a whole meal of these gems, I sure did!
A Little Bit About Brown Turkey Figs
When figs are in season, you should really try them out. I am featuring a Brown Turkey Fig in this recipe.
When I first tried them in their raw form, I have to admit that I was a little less than impressed. They were kind of bland. My thoughts were that maybe they just weren’t ripe enough. I’m sure there was a way to highlight these gems, so I set out to find it!
I decided to try roasting them a bit to see if they sweetened up and oh boy, that certainly was the right move! The flavor profile completely changed! They sweetened up a bit and the juice just poured out of them. Wow, were they ever good!
How To Make This Incredible Stuffed Fig Recipe!
So this is how I worked my magic on this stuffed figs recipe. This is a super simple recipe.
Step 1: First cut the fig in half and take a pecan and gently stuff it in the center of the fig.
Step 2: Next, take some goat cheese (preferably blueberry rolled goat cheese) and place a slice on top of the pecans.
Step 3: Now wrap the fig in prosciutto that is sliced very thin. This is where the magic starts to happen!
Step 4: Finally, throw them under a broiler, about 12 inches from the broiler, and broil them for about 5 minutes.
Step 5: If you want an extra pop, drizzle them with a balsamic vinegar reduction.
Now pop these bad boys into your mouth and enjoy EVERY.SINGLE.BITE!
Let me know what you think. I think they are pretty darn amazing! 🙂
