Honey Roasted Figs with Goats Cheese

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

Ingredients:
  • 8 Mission Figs, sliced in half
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • 3/4 C honey
  • goats cheese
  • fresh baguette
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.

The first time I ever had figs was with goat cheese. Such a great combination. Now it is the only way I like to eat figs. I love it!
