Fig & Gorgonzola Appetizer
The other day I was in Trader Joe’s and found fresh figs in the produce section. Two whole pounds of them for $5.99! I wasn’t sure what I was going to create, but I knew it would involve gorgonzola cheese, so I bought that also.
After googling “figs and gorgonzola,” I came across some interesting ideas. My version turned out to be a very tasty appetizer that’s quite easy to prepare.
Recipe: Fig & Gorgonzola Appetizer
– 2 pounds of figs
– 4 oz. gorgonzola cheese
– 3 strips (turkey) bacon, cooked and crumbled
– balsamic vinegar
– salt to taste
Clean figs and remove stems. Cut each fig in half lengthwise. Use your thumb to make a small indent in the center of each fig. Drizzle each fig half with a few drops of balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with salt. Top each fig half with a mixture of gorgonzola cheese and crumbled bacon.
Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes. Broil for 1 minute. Serve immediately.
