2 dozen ripe, fresh figs
4 to 5 thin slices prosciutto, cut into 2-by-2-inch squares
3 ounces Gorgonzola dolce


Cut an “x” into the top of each fig, slicing three-quarters of the way to the bottom. Stuff each fig with a piece of prosciutto. (Lay a square on top of the fig and push down gently on the center of the square, into the fig.) Spoon Gorgonzola into center of prosciutto. Repeat with each fig.

I would omit the prosciutto

I would omit the prosciutto and use dark chocolate instead. I eat figs with chocolate every night when in season as a dessert. Dark chocolate goes well with any kind of blue cheese.

Question on Stuffing Figs

I would like to do a vegetarian recipe using figs. Do you have other ideas for stuffing these delicious fruit without me? How would this one be if I just left all the prosciutto?
