  • Yield: 6 servings
Save Recipe


6 small fresh figs

2 Tbs. gorgonzola or another blue cheese

2 tsp. olive oil, preferably extra virgin

freshly ground black pepper to taste

2 Tbs. slivered almonds, toasted or 6 whole Marcona almonds, chopped

2 tsp. honey, optional


  1. Preheat oven broiler. Trim stems from figs and remove a small slice from the bottom so they will stand upright. Make a half-inch cut in the top of each fig and then another perpendicular to the first cut so that there is a cross-shaped opening in the top of each fig. 
  2. Place figs on a baking sheet and stuff some of the cheese into the top of each. Drizzle figs lightly with olive oil and grind some black pepper on top. Place in the oven and broil until the cheese bubbles, about two minutes. Remove and top each fig with almonds. Drizzle with honey if using and serve immediately.
