The Boy and I had some friends over for dinner a bit ago and I needed to make an appetizer to fend off hungry guests while I finished cooking. My parents had given me some figs from their tree so I went with that. Wrapped them in some Prosciutto, put a little dolop of bleu cheese on top and drizzled with some really well aged balsamic vinegar. Bam, appetizers served!
Prosciutto Wrapped Figs
4 figs, cut into sixths
8 slices of prosciutto, sliced into thirds long ways
2 tbsp blue cheese or gorgonzola
good balsamic vinegar
3 basil leaves, sliced very thinly
Wrap the prosciutto around each fig, crumble some blue cheese on top. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar on top and garnish with the basil.
