A fresh and healthy BBQ idea - figs stuffed with Gorgonzola, wrapped in Prosciutto and roasted will give your next BBQ a gourmet feel. Quick and simple, this slightly sweet, tangy and savoury side dish will have family and friends licking their lips and fingers. The eclectic combination of flavours will dance and pop lively inside your mouth.

Roasting the figs brings out a subtle smokey yet sweet flavour (without being overly sweet) which contrasts beautifully with the crispy saltiness from the prosciutto and the creamy and piquant taste of the Gorgonzola. This blend of contrasting tones and textures are perfect accompaniments to one another and enhances what is such a simple dish.

I used Gorgonzola Dolce which is a slightly younger, milder and creamier version of blue cheese. I also used top of the range San Danielle prosciutto.

Roasted Figs stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese and wrapped in Prosciutto is a wickedly delicious BBQ food.


Preparation Time: 10-mins
Cooking Time: 10-mins
Makes: 2 as an entree

Ingredients
4 Figs
50g Gorgonzola Dulce
4 Slices Prosciutto

You only need 3 key ingredients for this recipe, Figs, Gorgonzola and Prosciutto.


Method
Slice a deep cross into the top of each fig.

Ensure the figs you use are ripe and large as it will make cutting a cross on top of each fig easier to stuff.


Squeeze the bottom of the fig to open up the cross.

Squeeze the fig to open up the cross.


Insert a couple of wedges of Gorgonzola cheese inside each fig.

Insert wedges of Gorgonzola into each fig.


Wrap each fig with a slice of prosciutto, tucking the bottom in, then secure the prosciutto in place with a toothpick.

Wrap each fig with a slice of Prosciutto.


Place the figs onto a BBQ hot plate (if you don't have a BBQ) a grill or oven works equally as well.

Roast for approximately 10 minutes until the figs soften, the Gorgonzola has melted and the prosciutto is crispy.

Serve immediately as a stand-alone entree or as a side dish with barbecued meat, chicken or fish.

Serve immediately either as a stand alone entree or as a side dish with barbecued meat, chicken or fish.


Notes
I served these roasted figs with Barbecued Sand Whiting and Crumbed Asparagus with a bottle of chilled Riesling.
