Roasted Figs & Prosciutto

Roasted Figs & Prosciutto


  • 20 fresh figs

  •     15-20 slices Italian prosciutto (about 8 ounces)

  •     2 Tbs olive oil

  •     2 tsp honey

  •     black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Snip the hard stems off the figs, and cut in half lengthwise through the stem.  With a small sharp knife, cut the prosciutto lengthwise into inch-wide strips.

  3. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around the center of each fig half, with the ends overlapping.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and honey.  Brush each fig with the mixture, and top with freshly cracked black pepper.

  5. Roast for 10 minutes, or until the prosciutto is a little crisp and the figs are warmed through.

  6. Serve warm.
