Figs Stuffed With Chevre
The fig tree in our back yard is poppin’ out some fresh figs and we gotta get to them before the birds. This recipe is fast, easy, and tasty. Cut into a fresh fig, stuff it with some creamy dreamy goat cheese, and drizzle on a little extra honey for some more sweetness. Serve as an appetizer, snack, or dessert.

- 12 fresh figs
- 2.5 ounces (~ 1/2 cup) chevre (goat cheese)
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- Preheat oven to low broil. Spread a bit of olive oil on a baking dish.
- Take ~ 3 oz (1/2 cup) off chevre and place in a ziplock bag or piping bag. Let sit and/or warm it up with your hands until soft & pliable.
- Cut off the stem of the fig and cut an “X” through the top going 1/2 way down the fig (see pic). Place the figs on the baking sheet / pan.
- Cut off an edge of your ziplock bag and pipe evenly into each fig. Broil ~ 7-8 minutes or until chevre gets a slight brown color.
- Drizzle with honey & add salt to taste. Happy Eating! Beckie
- Bring your game up a notch and buy flavored goat cheese (fresh herbs already added). Garnish with finely diced & cooked bacon or pancetta if you got it & want it.
- Figs too wobbly on the baking dish. Snuggle them in tight or cut off a small, flat service on the bottom of the fig to make it stand up straight.
