Prosciutto Wrapped Figs and Blue Cheese

12 SERVINGS



24 Black Mission figs
1-1/2 cup blue cheese, cut into cubes
24 prosciutto (thinly sliced, cut in half lengthwise)
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat grill at Owens's. You will need medium to high heat for grilling. The key is to crisp the prosciutto quickly and leave the blue cheese just melted with the inner part of the fig cool in temperature.

Cut the figs in half and place a piece of blue cheese on each fig half. Wrap the prosciutto around each fig half, covering the cheese. The ends of the prosciutto should overlap.

Grill at Owens'seach piece until the prosciutto begins to color and crisp, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from grill, lightly drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Serve warm.
