This week might be one of the busiest weeks I've ever had. I have like 10 million things to do, and only 4 days left before we leave for Sydney. It's crazyyyy! I hope you'll understand me and forgive me if I keep this recipe post (very) short.
These Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs wrapped in prosciutto look like the most elaborate, fancy appetizer but are actually super simple and quick to make. They are all at once salty, sweet, savory, creamy, and chewy and make for the perfect party food.
When I tried these baked Stuffed Figs for the first time, I used some leftovers mascarpone I had in my fridge and...nope, it didn't work. The mascarpone cheese melted and the stuffed figs tasted funny. I also tried stuffing fresh figs with ricotta and that's actually quite good! Definitively a good substitute when you don't have some goat cheese on hand.
To make the most of the fig season, make sure to try this delicious fig chutney. It pairs beautifully with white meat and is perfect for the holidays. I swear you won't regret making it! And coming up soon, a fig lamb tajine (aka a Moroccan stew)!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto
Serve these Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs wrapped in prosciutto as an easy, yet elegant appetizer! Sweetened with honey and seasoned with fresh thyme and pepper, these Italy-inspired baked figs will be a hit at your next party
- 12 fresh figs not too ripe
- ⅓ cup goat cheese
- 1 ½ tbsp honey
- 1 ½ tbsp thyme
- fresh pepper
- 6 slices prosciutto cut in half lengthwise
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cut the figs crosswise from the top, halfway down the fruit. Stuff with goat cheese (about 1 ½ tsp per fig). Do not overstuff them or they will be a bit heavy.
Drizzle the top of the figs with honey and sprinkle them with thyme and pepper.
Wrap each fig with ½ slice of prosciutto. Secure the stuffed fig with toothpicks, if necessary.
Arrange the stuffed figs on a baking dish and bake them for about 10-12 minutes.
You can top your figs with toasted walnuts, it's delicious!
