Prosciutto Wrapped Figs & Gorgonzola

 Makes 16, Serves 8

Makes 16, Serves 8

Salty-sweet, my favorite combo. These are incredibly simple to make, but my friends go nuts for them. I like serving these at cocktail time, usually with an Aperol Spritz.

I'm not a fan of cheese plates before dinner because they tend to be too filling, but I do love cheese, so these are a nice compromise. I get to have my cake (well, cheese) and eat it, too. If you can't find fresh figs, try using sliced peaches.

  • 2 ounces (55 g)
  • Gorgonzola cheese (I like to use Gorgonzola dolce, the creamy kind)
  • 8 figs, halved 8 slices prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise

Pinch off a small piece of Gorgonzola and place it on top of a fig half. Wrap a piece of prosciutto around it. Repeat with the remaining fig halves and serve.
