Grilled Figs with Goat Cheese and Balsamic

Posted by Dacia August 15, 2010 3 Comments 1027 views

This is another one of my delicious failures. Delicious to me, delicious to Eric, but apparently inedible to Miss Neko. I previously thought that I could get Neko to eat anything as long as I served it with goat cheese on top, but I proved myself wrong with these grilled figs.

I even tried two different topping techniques—drizzling balsamic vinegar over half and honey over the other half, but the kid just wasn’t having it. I’ve heard that grilled figs are especially delicious when you wrap them in prosciutto before cooking them. Maybe I’ll try that next time, since bacon seems to have eclipsed goat cheese as Neko’s favorite food.

Grilled Figs with Goat Cheese and Balsamic
12 fresh figs
4 oz. fresh goat cheese
olive oil
balsamic vinegar

Wash your figs and slice them in half. Brush them with olive oil and grill them over low heat, turning once, until both sides have grill marks and the figs are softened.

Remove figs from the grill and let them cool to room temperature. Top each fig with a generous teaspoon of goat cheese. Drizzle balsamic over the plate, then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

    Such a spot on! I have something like this at a restaurant today but they’ve gone wrong with the kind of cheese and they’ve used dry figs (a sin in the season, as far as I am concerned) – you inspire me to experiment with this recipe)
