While the Bionic Man was in the hospital, well, becoming the Bionic Man, I picked up some Mission Figs. I have always wanted to roast them but my husband was never really excited about it. Here was my opportunity to experiment in the kitchen and it was so much fun. I bought two types of cheeses, goat and brie, and after sampling the flavors, opted for the fresh goat cheese. I ate myself silly as it is so good.
Honey Roasted Figs with Goats Cheese
8 Mission Figs, sliced in half
3/4 C honey
Directions: Wash and de-stem the figs, then slice in half. Arrange on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Roast in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Drizzle with honey during the last 5 minutes of roasting, then remove from oven and cool for about 10 minutes.
To serve, I broke the baguette into small pieces, smeared with goats cheese, then a fig with a bit more honey drizzled on.
