Figs Stuffed with Gorgonzola

Figs Stuffed with Gorgonzola and Drizzled in Balsamic Reduction with Prosciutto

And another fig post. I have been keeping an eye out for fig recipes and when this one for "Parmesan Stuffed Figs with Balsamic Reduction" was posted, I tried it right away. I still had some gorgonzola cheese so I replaced the parmesan with the gorgonzola. This one was pretty good. I was a bit worried that the figs would get too cooked before the cheese melted but the cheese melted and the figs were not too warm. The balsamic reduction added a nice sour and sweet touch.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
figs
gorgonzola cheese
prosciutto

Directions:
1. Simmer the balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan until it reduces to half the original volume.
2. Slice the figs open on the top.
3. Stuff a piece of gorgonzola cheese into the sliced open fig.
4. Broil the figs until the cheese melts, about 4 minutes.
5. Place the figs onto the serving dish and drizzle some of the balsamic reduction onto them.
6. Add some slices of prosciutto to the serving dish.

Wow, another delicious looking dish with figs... I don't eat red meant but it looks really lovely.
I think I must finally get some fresh figs and make something with them...

Enjoy your weekend, Margot

Yum! You keep on doing the fig posts as much as you want! I love them and don't find as many recipes featuring them as other fruit. That looks perfect, as always! :)

Kevin, that looks amazing! I am ashamed to say that I have never had a fresh fig, I don't think I've ever seen one in real life. I have got to search around and see if I can find some.
