Grilled Prosciutto and Brie Wrapped Figs

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

Servings 12 bites

Equipment

  • Outdoor or indoor grill
  • Cutting board
  • Chef’s knife

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Substitutions

  • 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.
