I often cook a very similar dish to this, but I just pop the lot on the bbq to cook it. Make sure the proscuitto is wrapped under the bottom of the fig to protect it from the bbq.


  • 12 Thin slices prosciutto or cullatello

  • 12 fresh figs

  • 220 g Gorgonzola


  • 1.

    Turn on your bbq.

  • 2.

    Cut a cross in the top of each fig, gently squeeze the bottom of the fig to open up the cross.

  • 3.

    Wrap one slice of prosciutto around the underside of each fig and secure with a toothpick.

  • 4.

    Place a small dob of gorgonzola inside each fig.

  • 5.

    Place figs on the bbq plate and cook for 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Be careful not to burn the underside of the fig.
