Savory fig and goat cheese appetizer

It must be the season for figs! I've been seeing them everywhere!  Good thing for me because we had some friends over for dinner the other night and I needed to make some sort of appetizer. I was inspired by the dates stuffed with goat cheese I had a couple weeks ago and thought, why not stuff the figs with goat cheese?

Here is what I did:
  • Quarter the figs about 3/4 of the way down
  • Stuff each one with goat cheese
  • Brush each one with olive oil
  • Broil on High in the oven for about 15 minutes
  • Take them out of the oven and sprinkle with sea salt and black paper
  • Drizzle them with honey
  • Serve with balsamic vinegar for dipping

The sweetness of the ripe figs and honey complemented the richness and warmth of the goat cheese so well.  The balsamic vinegar added the perfect amount of acidity to balance out all the mingling flavors.

I'm sharing with:

    Your savoury fig and goat cheese appetizer must have been a sweet surprise for your guests! Would you believe I live in a country where figs are so bountiful and I've NEVER had one in my whole life?! Shameful, but true. Just do not crave fruit. Better get my act together and start expanding my food horizons, don't you think? Thanks for sharing this delicious treat!
