Fresh Figs with Goat Cheese & Honey

by kitchenarian on September 17, 2012

Warning: I may repeat myself.

I love fall.

I love fresh figs.

I love goat cheese.

I love honey.

See where I am going here….

I love this appetizer.

This is a recipe, but not really. It is three ingredients (that I love) that you combine to amaze and impress your taste buds…and your friends…maybe not your children, but that’s ok. It just leaves more for you.

I love fresh figs with blue cheese too. Almost as much as I do with goat cheese. Almost.

What is your favorite way to prepare this delectable  fruit?


Fresh figs
Goat cheese

Starting at the fig’s stem end, cut each fig into quarters, stopping 1/2 inch from bottom so that the bottom stays intact. Press the figs open and spoon a small amount of goat cheese into the center. Arrange figs on your serving platter and drizzle with honey. Serve immediately.

Kitchenarian Notes: You can also slice the figs in half and place the goat cheese on the fig half with drizzled honey.

My favorite way to eat a fig! YUM! My mom had bought a huge box with figs from Costco…I think I ate their entire stash. :/ How many figs is too many? 😉

I have never had figs. Well, unless those little cookies count, (fig newtons?). These look stunning though!

Wow, this must be the easiest and most delicious fig recipe I’ve seen. Stunning, too!

Love this recipe! So elegant and flavorful. I’ve also had it where the honey is mixed with the cheese before stuffing but they also mixed in a small sprinkle of finely chopped fresh rosemary. It gave it a beautifully fragrant flavor that really paired nicely.

Such a simple, but very yummy, little recipe. I’m in Australia do will have to wait a few months before I can try this on out. Do you use any particular style of goats cheese?
