Roasted Figs with Cheese and Bacon
This recipe is the perfect storm of sweet and savoury yumminess and a great appetizer.
- 6-8 Fresh Figs
- Hard cheese (Parmesan, Gruyère or Comté)
- 3 Slices Parma Ham or Speck
- Salt and Pepper
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.
