How to make it
This figs with Gorgonzola recipe could be both a starter and a dessert. It could even be a light lunch, or a snack. The sweet figs, creamy gorgonzola and salty prosciutto is a winning combination.
- When selecting figs, choose those which are firm, plump with smooth unbroken skin, and free from bruises.
- In this recipe we use Gorgonzola Dolce DOP, which is the creamier and sweeter version of Gorgonzola.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6
- Lightly oil a baking dish
- Score a deep cross in the top of each fig
- Lay one slice of prosciutto on a work surface
- Roll the prosciutto around the fig, ensuring the base is covered and the top of the fig is visible over the prosciutto
- Repeat with the remaining figs and prosciutto
- Press Gorgonzola into the cavities of the figs
- Place the figs in the dish and roast for 10-12 minutes until the cheese has melted
- Serve drizzled with honey and a sprinkling of walnuts
