A recipe for Bleu Cheese Stuffed Figs wrapped in Proscuitto. Bleu Cheese Stuffed Fig recipe. Figs are one of my favorite foods ever. I think I like them so much because fig season is incredibly short and they’re nearly impossible to find fresh out of season. So when they are in season I go a little crazy and eat them almost everyday! One of my favorite things to do with figs (besides just standing in front of the fridge, stuffing my face with them) is the recipe above. It’s super easy and so freakin’ good! Some people aren’t fans of bleu cheese….that’s okay, I forgive you…if that’s the case I recommend switching it out for a White Stilton (specifically the lemon peel flavored one…so good!). Another thing you might be thinking is, “NOOOO! Jenny, how dare you chop up precious Marconas!” I know, I know, shame on me. I like chopping them in this instance because I like the little bits of crunch you get here and there while eating these lovely little bundles of sweet, sweet love….See? I totally get a little insane when it comes to figs. Still not buying my chopping up the Marcona almonds?No problem! After the figs come out of the oven, instead of chopping them, just keep them whole and stuff them right into the figs, just like the cheese :) Enjoy!

    OMG, I stand in front of the fridge stuffing my face with them too!! I grew up with fig trees all around me in Lebanon. They almost always rotted and fell off and no one cared. Here in Montreal, the season is so short and they are so pricey but I do love them and I go a little crazy when they’re in season as well!! :)

    Since I’m totally allergic to bleu cheese, this dish just looks like a gigantic hospital visit. BUT I bet I could just switch out the bleu cheese for goat cheese…or ricotta. Probably won’t be nearly as good, but at least I’d live….:_

      Hey Lady!

      BOOOO to food allergies :( What is it exactly in bleu cheese that you’re allergic to…is it the penicillium roqueforti? If it is, you should try my suggestion of White Stilton written above. Mold cultures are only introduced to the “bleu” variety of Stilton so for people with mold allergies this is the best alternative….still the same great flavor, but much more mild (you don’t get the lovely “feet” flavor, ha!) I don’t know if I would go with a regular whole milk/part skim ricotta because the extra kick of a stronger cheese really makes a difference with this. If you’re keen on using ricotta, maybe go for ricotta salata…the drier, saltier version. It’s got a great “edge” to it, so to speak. If the mold isn’t your issue…well, then I got nothin’. Ah and yes, goat cheese…awesome substitute, but there’s plenty of goat cheese coming up in Friday’s post! :) xx

    These sound delicious. I have never done anything with figs as they are so hard to find over here but think I will have to hunt them down just to try this recipe.

  6. Jessa Not Specified Not Specified

    I WANT to try this! I just had my very fresh fig yesterday and I felt like I missed out the first 31 years of my life! Figs and bleu cheese? Amazing!

  7. Foodiebia Not Specified Not Specified

    I just discovered figs, actually. Had my first one a few weeks back and haven’t stopped eating them since. I would love to try this recipe with bacon, increasing the cooking time a bit. Yum!

    I’m a voracious eater of figs myself. I want to eat every single one of those in one sitting!

    OMG this is sensational! Pity it is not fig season here in Australia because I have a tub of fresh ricotta that is begging to be used. Wondering what other fruit would behave well if treated with this recipe?

    I gotta share that I made these last week and omg…ridiculously tasty and easy! I admit that I didn’t have the Marcona almonds and used some dry roasted regular ones that I had on hand. deelish nonetheless :)

    I am crazy about figs. I used to pick them from my grandmother’s fig tree, and eat them on the spot. This recipe sounds really good! I just starting following your blog…what more could you ask for than a knife, fork and bacon? It works for me! Patsy
