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)!

  1. Just found your beautiful website whilst looking for ideas for stuffed figs – made mine with caramelised orange balsamic instead of honey. A fabulous supper!
    Thanks for making the internet a better place 🙂

  2. I am going to try using bacon (par fry off before wrapping) a sprinkle of cinamon and drizzle of palm suger syrup instead of honey.
    Sounds good to me — will let yo know!

  3. My version!
    I par cooked bacon to replace the proscuito and drizled with palm sugar syrup with a drop of honey – baked for 10 min then topped with lightly fried wallnuts and shards of the toffee which had formed when baking– WOW not too sweet GREAT for A STARTER then later we had Thai fish/prawn cakes with a light dip sauce, nice for a Sat or Sun night for two with a bottle of sparkly

  4. I LOVE the look of these stuffed figs! They take me right back to my last trip to Italy. The salty, creamy goat cheese, sweet honey and savoury prosciutto work so well with fresh figs.
