Figs are very versatile and are a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Dried and fresh figs have a long, illustrious history and can add a burst of sweetness to all kinds of dishes! While these figs are great with any dinner, this month, I wanted to keep Thanksgiving in mind. We all know how busy the kitchen can be, but this is a quick appetizer that is guaranteed to keep your guests satisfied before the feast.
Roasted Figs and Goat Cheese with Warm Honey Drizzle
12 Figs, fresh or dried
1/4 log Goat cheese
Olive oil (enough to coat pan)
4 tbsp Honey
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice off 1/4 of the tops off of the fig.
*Chef’s note: put your finger inside the fig to shape a flat bottom and round sides for stuffing.
Lightly coat a baking pan with olive oil. Place figs in the baking pan and stuff with goat cheese.
Bake for 12 minutes
Warm Honey Drizzle:
Heat honey in microwave for 10-15 seconds. Once you plate the figs, drizzle the honey over the figs.
