DSC_0033

If you love figs this is the dish for you.  Combining the classic Mediterranean ingredients of figs, honey, and mascaropne cheese, this dish is so simple to make.   As a bonus, it can be served as an appetizer on a buffet table or as a light dessert or even as snack.   Because there are only three ingredients make sure that you use the best quality ingredients you can find.  If you don’t have a grill the figs can be cooked under the broiler.

GRILLED FIGS w/ HONEY & MASCARPONE 

8 ripe figs

1/4 cup mascarpone cheese, at room temperature

2 tablespoons honey

  • Lightly oil the grill rack or broiler pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Preheat a gas grill or broiler to high.
  • Slice the figs in half lengthwise.
  • Place a small dollop of mascarpone cheese onto the top of each fig.  Drizzle with the honey.
  • When the grill is hot, reduce the temperature to medium-high.  Place the figs directly onto the grill and close the lid.  Cook for 2-3 minute until the cheese melts and the outer skins of the figs just begin to char and turn crisp.  Serve immediately.

Serves: 4
