This recipe for “Fresh Fig Bites with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto” earned raves from the judges in our recent “5-Ingredient” recipe contest. The appetizer can be served anywhere from a casual backyard get-together, to a high-end affair.
Our winner, “Dempcath,” suggested serving the appetizer with a crisp Pinot Grigio. It is an absolute perfect pairing. You may not be able to wear white after Labor Day, but you sure can sip your favorite white while enjoying these fig appetizers!
Fresh Fig Bites with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto (click here to print recipe)
6 Fresh California Figs, sliced in half
1 Tbsp Honey, divided
2 Tbsp Goat Cheese, divided
12 Baby Arugula Leaves
3 slices Prosciutto, cut lengthwise then in half to make 12 pieces
1.) Cut a slit lengthwise with a small sharp knife on flesh side of each fig half.
2.) Spoon or brush 1/4 tsp. of honey onto each fig half.
3.) Press 1/2 tsp. of goat cheese into slit of each fig.
4.) Wrap each fig with an arugula leaf and a strip of prosciutto. Arrange on a small platter lined with more arugula; add a turn of freshly ground black pepper, if desired, and serve.
Fig bites should be prepared no more than 1 hour before serving to prevent from becoming too soft. Pairs well with a nice Pinot Grigio wine.
