Goat Cheese, Honey, and Black Pepper Stuffed Figs

Figs

I have to admit that I stole this idea from a good friend of my husband. Although, with a few minor tweaks. She brought these to a dinner party once and we’ve been knocking them off ever since. These are truly amazing, but figs aren’t always in season. So a fig jam on good crusty bread topped with goat cheese works really well. These are great little appetizers to bring to a dinner party. They can sit out at room temperature well and they’re surprisingly popular at football games!

Yield: 20 figs

Goat Cheese, Honey, and Black Pepper Stuffed Figs

These are truly amazing, stuffed figs. Perfectly sweet, tangy, with a slight bit of heat.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 20 fresh Figs
  • 1 1/4 cup Goat Cheese
  • 3 springs fresh Thyme
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • Fresh Ground Pepper

Instructions

    1. Slice the fig from the stem toward the base, almost cutting through but leaving it attached (approx 3/4), turn and do again so the fig is cut like it’d be in fourths but not through.
    2. Open the fig without splitting it farther, fill with 1t of goat cheese and place on a cookie sheet.
    3. Grind fresh black pepper over the top and place them under a broiler set on high until the cheese is golden and figs are slightly tender.
    4. Place figs on a plate and drizzle with honey and sprinkle with thyme and serve.
