Heaven in Your Mouth: Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto

Ingredients

  • 4 fresh purple or green figs (washed, dried, stemmed, and cut in half)
  • 2 slices of prosciutto
  • 2 thin slices of English Stilton cheese (crumbled)
  • 6 thin slices toasted walnut halves (chopped)
  • Good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Good quality balsamic vinegar ((preferably aged, but not necessary))

Directions

First, toast the walnut halves at 375 °F in a cake pan for six to eight minutes—once you start smelling them, take them out. Toast extra to have on hand for the next time or for green beans.
For two plates, place four fig halves on each.
Take the slice of prosciutto, tear into four pieces, and wrap around each fig half.
Sprinkle on the Stilton and chopped walnut pieces
Drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil (about one teaspoon on each plate) and then drizzle with a tiny bit of vinegar, too (a few drops).
Serve immediately and listen to your guest tell you how much he/she LOVES you!
