Prosciutto Fig Bites
Oh lord this is heaven in your face hole
Literally everyone: “We all know an Italian chick from Jersey can make an appetizer by wrapping prosciutto around almost anything”
Me: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! (Yes I’m a huge HIMYM fan #fightme)
I promise you that this appetizer will change the way you view wrapping prosciutto around something…or at least give you a more delicious option. This is the kind of appetizer that can be served anywhere from a casual backyard get-together, to a high-end affair. #win
Best Boozy Pairing: Pino Grigio (we all know I hate white white but it is what it is)
Now let’s get down to it…
What you need:
- 6 Fresh Figs (halved)
- 1 Tbsp Honey (divided)
- 2 Tbsp Goat Cheese (divided)
- 12 Baby Arugula Leaves
- 6 slices Prosciutto (halved)
What you do:
1.) Cut a slit lengthwise with a small sharp knife on flesh side of each fig half.
2.) Spoon or brush 1/4 tsp. of honey onto each fig half.
3.) Press 1/2 tsp. of goat cheese into slit of each fig.
4.) Wrap each fig with an arugula leaf and a strip of prosciutto. Arrange on a small platter lined with more arugula; add a turn of freshly ground black pepper, if desired, and serve.
Fig bites should be prepared no more than 1 hour before serving to prevent from becoming too soft.
