Both were amazing and I am now hooked forever.
This fig appetizer is super easy to prepare and tastes like an appetizer from a five star bistro menu.
While Adriana served me a green type fig I found black mission figs in my local grocery store for a fraction of the price. The taste is very similar.
I tucked in slices of different cheeses in a few some to mix it up a bit.
Prosciutto Wrapped Figs with a Balsamic Reduction
- 6 to 10 fresh figs cut in half
- slices of thin prosciutto
- small slices of various cheeses (optional)
- 1/4 cup of good quality balsamic vinegar
Wrap figs with prosciutto slices and arrange on a cookie sheet.
Insert pieces of cheese under the prosciutto on a few if desired.
In a small saucepan bring the balsamic vinegar to a low boil and reduce heat and simmer stirring until thickened.
Place in oven until prosciutto starts to crisp.
Remove from the oven.
Arrange on a platter and drizzle with balsamic reduction and serve.
