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.
