Another foray into figs...

So we enjoyed the figs so much the first time we had them we decided to buy some more. But I had no clue what to do with them.

The other weekend we were kicking around the house and though we'd have figs and some roasted garlic with bread for lunch - so I browsed on the WW site and found this fig recipe - since I had everything in the house we went with it.

It was so tasty and easy and really a nice way to have the figs. Great to put out for a party as well!

Honey and Cheese Stuffed Figs
From Weight Watchers

16 medium fig(s), washed and patted dry, stems removed, each sliced
2/3 oz soft-type goat cheese, such as chevre (about 2 Tbsp)
6 tbsp part-skim ricotta cheese
2 tbsp thyme, fresh, leaves
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste


Place figs on a large serving platter, cut-side up. Combine cheeses and thyme in a small bowl. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon of cheese mixture over each fig half; drizzle with honey and sprinkle with pepper. Yields 2 fig halves per serving.

This looks great! I love figs and prepare them in both sweet & savory ways. There are a handful of fig recipes in my blog...
