I was very clear that there are all sorts of things you can do with Goat Cheese Cream. This is one of them!
It's called a concrete example, folks.
So, a few weeks ago Jay had to work late on a Friday because he works at a college and when the students are back to school it only makes sense that the staff stay late every night and feed them free pizza while pimping out their respective organizations and activities, right?
So, homeboy was late, and I was bored, so I mad a gazillion course steak dinner.
We'll get to the actual dinner tomorrow.
This is what we had for an appetizer though!
Here's what you need:
- 8 whole ripe figs
- 8 slices prosciutto
- ¼ cup goat cheese cream (or plain goat cheese if you're not into the whole mixing cheeses thing)
These are quite easy, and you can make them ahead and then just bake them when you're ready to eat them!
When you DO bake them, though, you'll want to have your oven preheated to 425F.
To make the wraps, cut each fig in half.
Figs look like fall to me, even though they are ripe in the summer. Does anyone have that particular feeling? It's the purple, I think.
Anyway. Spoon a little bit of the cheese filling into each of the figs - less than a teaspoon will be just fine.
Then, tear the prosciutto strips in half - there's usually a nice natural seam that works beautifully.
Wrap each fig with a half slice of prosciutto, and lay it cheese-side UP in a baking dish.
Yum! You could totally eat these raw since the meat is cured - they're great this way!
I, however, like to bake them. Because crispy pork products and melty cheese are delicious.
So, bake these guys for 15-20 minutes until the cheese melts and the prosciutto gets a little bit crispy!
Wow. Perfect. Salty, creamy, sweet.....everything you need in a bite-sized appetizer! Plus, these guys don't have to be piping hot, so they're great for a party where people are just nibbling!
Enjoy these - they're delicious! Such a great snack, and another entry in Weekend Potluck –I just love Tonya and her family over at 4LittleFergusons.
