Figs Stuffed with Herbed Goat Cheese and Prosciutto
- 4 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
- 8 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves minced
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves minced
- 1 lemon, zested
- 6 mission figs, halved
- 4 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
- Place goat cheese in a small bowl; allow to sit and soften, about 30 minutes.
- Mix lemon zest with herbs into goat cheese using a flat spatula.
- Spread herbed goat cheese generously on half of fig; add matching half and press together.
- Lay prosciutto on a cold platter, pinching it slightly to create a bed for the figs.
- Lay the stuffed figs on the proscuitto and garnish with thyme. Serve at room temperature.
For an added layer of flavor, drizzle balsamic vinegar on the serving platter underneath the figs, or serve it on the side with a touch of honey. Serve with toasted baguette slices for a more filling dish. The figs travel well, and this is a great dish to bring along to a picnic or casual party.

This recipe is fantastic! I always make this when my friends come over and serve it with a bottle of wine. While it looks super fancy, it's so easy to prepare! If you can make a sandwich, you can pull this one off.

This is the perfect appetizer when entertaining guests! You can never go wrong with prosciutto. The combination with the fig gives this a nice sweet and salty combination. Love it!
Laura Griffin says:
This was super easy to make! Letting the goat cheese soften first made it easy to spread. Love the sweet and salty mix. I'm making this again when my in-laws come to town this week.
