It’s time for another Mighty Good Recipe!
When someone gives you ripe figs … you make Warm Figs with Goat Cheese, Prosciutto, and Honey. Stupid joke aside, when Greg Henderson of Rock City Times delivered me a bag of fresh figs, my mind immediately went to pairing them with the cheese and prosciutto. I came up with this quick and delicious recipe which makes for a wonderfully appealing appetizer.
-20 figs (de-stemmed and cut in half)
-2 tablespoons of honey (Sun Harvest Honey)
-2 tablespoons of olive oil
-Small package of goat cheese
-15-20 slices of prosciutto (purchased at Hillcrest Artisan Meats)
Pour olive oil into a pan and set to Medium High. After 2-3 minutes, add your figs. Let the figs cook for 3 minutes, add the honey, and cook for another 2 minutes. Raise the heat to High and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside. Let the figs cool down for 10-15 minutes. Take a piece of prosciutto and place in the center of a small plate. Add 1-2 pieces of fig. Add some crumbled goat cheese. Spoon a little reserved honey/olive oil/juice mixture over top.
