Prosciutto Wrapped Figs & Gorgonzola
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.
