Servings 8 small bites

Ingredients
  

  • 6-8 Fresh Figs
  • Hard cheese (Parmesan, Gruyère or Comté)
  • 3 Slices Parma Ham or Speck
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions
 

  • Chop off the little stem so that each fig half can be sliced in two horizontally (if you slice them longways they fall over too easily).
  • Add a slice of cheese and ham on top of each fig and add pepper and salt.
  • Put in a pre-heated oven at 325F (160C) degrees and leave to roast for about 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the bacon crisped up.
  • Make sure you don’t leave it for so long that the fig collapses and turns to mush.
  • Serve on a pretty dish, the fig should be firm enough for your guests to pick up easily.
