GRILLED PROSCIUTTO WRAPPED FIGS WITH BLUE CHEESE

Figs. Stinky Blue Cheese. Prosciutto. Need I say more? 
I just love the flavor combination these three ingredients create. They balance each other in just the right way... I'm pretty sure figs, blue cheese, and prosciutto are best friends. 
To create this simple dish yourself you'll need:
A heated grill on low. Make sure you spray with oil before lighting so nothing sticks.
A few slices of prosciutto. I cut each slice of prosciutto into four individual pieces, so do your math and find the perfect prosciutto / fig ratio. Make sure you have an extra slice for yourself...to nibble on while you're making this, of course.





Stinky blue. I picked up a Danish Blue Cheese from the little Italian market, Cardona's by my house.



Black Mission Figs. These are also from Cardona's and they're extremely ripe, hence my decision to make this dish.


 



Cut your figs in half.



Place a nice slice of blue on each fig.





Then wrap them with prosciutto. 



Make sure there is enough prosciutto so the two ends overlap. You don't want to lose any of the blue cheese.








 

You can drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt & pepper or enjoy them just as they are!
