Goat Cheese Stuffed Fig Recipe

 

This Goat Cheese Stuffed Fig Recipe really easy for the summer summer. You do all the cooking outside, so it will not warm up your house. This recipe can be made while you are our grilling your hamburgers and steaks. I recommend that you use every type of fig I mentioned in my previous post. The grilling draws out the sugar in the figs, which helps cut through the strong flavors of the goat cheese. Together, these flavors are perfect. 

Recipe makes 20 goat cheese stuffed figs

Ingredients

  • 10 Melissa’s Produce Figs (Use any type, although I recommend you use a variety of colors for a party)
  • ½ Cup goat cheese ( left out to room temperature)

  1. This recipe sounds amazing and simple. Thank you for posting!

  2. Thank you for the recipe! I love goat cheese and fig together. Costco has a product that has these two items in one…I like the idea of BBQing the figs!

  3. I need to get some figs and try this recipe!

  4. Yum! Are figs available anytime of year?

  5. I have never been a huge friend of figs. Ecuadorians love to cook them in a really sweet syrup and then serve them with cheese. I think this is more like me, skipping the syrupy part, lol

  6. I never tried a figs before.. looks like yummy.
