Description

Easy 15-minute baked figs with goat cheese, walnuts, honey and sage. These baked figs make an elegant savory appetizer your guests will love!

Ingredients

  • 6  Medium-sized Figs
  • 2-⅞ ounces, weight Soft Goat Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Walnuts
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Sage
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste

Preparation

Preheat oven to 200°C or 390°F. Cut off the stems and make an ‘X’ cut in the top of each fig halfway through.

Stuff the figs with soft goat cheese using a teaspoon. Sprinkle some chopped walnuts and sage over stuffed figs and drizzle with honey. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Broil for about 5 minutes or until they look soft and release juice. Serve warm or cold with a glass of wine. Enjoy!

Here are some more ideas on what to pair figs with:
1. Try to substitute goat cheese with ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella or blue cheeses like Gorgonzola or Stilton.
2. Adding capers or olives highlights the sweet taste of figs and adds an extra savory note.
3. A drizzle of lemon juice over figs will add a tangy touch to your figs.
4. If not vegetarian, try wrapping figs in prosciutto ham and bake.
5. Balsamic vinegar or balsamic reduction pairs nicely with figs.
6. Try using almonds, pistachios or pecans instead of walnuts.
7. Substitute sage for rosemary, thyme or basil.
8. Try adding warm spices like star anise, cloves, cardamom, nutmeg or cinnamon.
9. Serve figs as an addition to your cheese plate and don’t forget the wine!
