A few weeks ago, I had an appetizer in a restaurant that was absolutely delicious….Roasted Figs Stuffed with Goat Cheese. So the figs arrive and I take one bite and I immediately conclude that I will absolutely replicate this delicious little first course.
I bought the most beautiful Mission Figs at 320 Produce yesterday, and not having anything else to do since we had to stay inside, I decided to make “Roasted Figs Irene.”
Preheat over to 425°. Cut an “X” into each fig but don’t cut all the way through the fig (I cut the little tops off of the figs but next time, I'll keep them on). Stuff each fig with one teaspoon of goat cheese. Place the figs in a roasting pan in which you can tightly pack them to avoid them tipping over and the goat cheese spilling out. Roast for 10-12 minutes, until softened. Warm 2 tablespoons of honey in the microwave (about 20 seconds) and drizzle the honey over the figs.
Very fancy and so good.
