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
