Prosciutto Wrapped Gorgonzola Stuffed Figs

Prosciutto Wrapped Gorgonzola Stuffed Figs
The other day I came across some nice looking figs at the market and they immediately reminded me of a pin that I had recently made on pinterest for figs with gorgonzola and speck and I could not resist picking some up so that I could try the recipe! Sweet figs and tangy gorgonzola are a fabulous flavour combination that I have used many times and I was immediately taken with the idea of wrapping them in a salty cured ham! Not only do we have the fig, gorgonzola, and prosciutto flavour combination going but they are baked until the cheese starts to melt and the prosciutto gets nice and crispy on the edges making it even better! What an perfect appetizer for any occasion!

*Gorgonzola is a blue cheese and gorgonzola docle is a younger version that is milder, softer and creamier and it can be replaced by any other mild blue cheese.

*Prosciutto is an Italian cured ham and you can replace it with another thinly sliced cured ham such as speck, pancetta, serrano, etc.

Just look at all of that melted blue cheese oozing out! Heaven by the mouthful!

I actually came across figs at whole foods this weekend and was very confused because I thought they were seriously out of season! I should have picked some up so I could have made this!

Kevin, I am new to your blog, and absolutely thrilled to have found you! Your recipes are fabulous and your photos exquisite!
Here's a question: Do you know of any prosciutto product that doesn't have nitrates or nitrites? I would be forever grateful for your reply.

I had these once before and was determined to make them myself because they were SO delicious. I couldn't find fresh figs, but I was on a mission and became obsessed and careless.
Extremely Important Note: Never use dried figs.

Elegant and easy, what more could you ask for in the next two months?

WOW! I can almost taste the amazing mashup of salty prosciutto and sweet figs. And the gorgonzola? What's not to love!?

Kevin,

While I'm sure that these are extremely tasty, I must say that this is the most putrid, unappealing looking recipes you've ever posted. Love your blog though. Keep up the great work.

If you are not a fan of blue cheese, goat's curd is an excellent substitute in this recipe. A drizzle of vincotto or reduced balsamic when serving is also nice if your figs aren't perfectly ripe.

Anonymous: A drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar would be a fantastic addition!
