Warm Figs and Prosciutto

A really good triple cream spread underneath doesn't hurt either

A really good triple cream spread underneath doesn’t hurt either

This isn’t really a recipe. For us it was an epiphany. We’ve baked figs, caramelized them, wrapped them in phyllo, cooked them into jam, served them over ice cream, stuffed them with chocolate, grilled them, plopped them in drinks, served them for breakfast, dinner and dessert  … In short (too late!) we thought we’d done it all. Then we broiled them. Just trust us. Better than candy.

What you’ll need: Figs, balsamic vinegar, prosciutto.

What you’ll do: spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, cut as many figs as you can fit on it in half. Brush each fig half with vinegar than wrap with about a third a slice of meat. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and broil on high for 3-5 minutes until the meat is sizzling and the figs are tender.
