Equipment

  • oven proof dish

Ingredients

  • 6 figs (Black Mission or Brown Turkey)
  • 5 ounces Roquefort
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • Balsamic glaze if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Begin by trimming the figs. Snip off the stem and cut a cross about halfway through each fruit. Set into a shallow roasting pan and try to “fan them out” just a bit so they can encase the Roquefort. They will open naturally during roasting.
  • Drizzle with the olive oil and roast for 8 minutes. Fruits will be mildly fragrant when removing from the oven.
  • Break smallish hunks of the Roquefort off and place right in the middle of your partially roasted fig. Drizzle with the honey and return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes.
  • When plating, be sure to spoon the pan juices and drizzle over the fruit so no flavors are wasted. Finish with a few drops of Balsamic glaze if desired.
