Yep, these are basically the exact same ingredients from my Fig and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese sandwiches from earlier this week! Good food blogger move? No. Good fridge-cleaner-outer move? Yes!
These couldn’t be more delicious, or easier. They’re crispy smoky from the prosciutto, gooey and cheesy from the melted cheese, jammy and sweet from the figs. A fantastic little appetizer, and you can swap in peach slices while they’re still in season, or apple or pear slices later into Fall!
Grilled Prosciutto and Brie Wrapped Figs
- Outdoor or indoor grill
- Cutting board
- Chef’s knife
- 6 slices prosciutto
- 6 large ripe figs
- 12 1-inch pieces of sliced brie (or blue cheese! or camembert! or a teaspoon of goat cheese! or cheddar honestly would be delish too!)
- 1 to 2 tbsp honey
- Optional: 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
- Halve 6 prosciutto slices lengthwise. Halve 6 large figs. Place the figs at the end of a sliced piece of prosciutto. Place the cheese on top of the fig, and roll the fig up into the prosciutto.
- Grill figs for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until slightly crisped up, but not so much that the cheese is totally oozing out!
- Drizzle with 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, and enjoy immediately!
- Prosciutto: no – bacon won’t work, it won’t cook fast enough! You could skewer some salami around the figs!
- Figs: peaches, apples, pears…
- Cheese: literally any kind of cheese would be delicious. I don’t think you can go wrong!
- Honey: balsamic glaze would also be tasty!
- Thyme: finely minced rosemary. You can also use a tiny pinch of dried herbs, just be sure to smash them between your fingers as you sprinkle them on top so that you don’t get a hard bite.
