- 3 x Fresh Figs
- 3 Tbsp of Gorgonzola
- 3 x Slices of Prosciutto
- 100ml Fresh Cream
- Black pepper
- 8 Sage leaves
- 8 slices of any bread of your choice
Take your figs and cut the top off, then cut a cross horizontally and vertically. Gently pull the sides apart, allowing it to open.
Take 1 tbsp of Gorgonzola and insert it into the centre of the fig, pressing it in between the slices.
(NB: The Gorgonzola must be soft and not too pungent)
Wrap a single layer of Prosciutto around each fig.
(Note: Not bacon as it is too thick, and not Parma Ham as it is too dry)
Place 3 figs in an oven-friendly bowl and pour your cream over the figs.
Lightly grind the black pepper over the figs – NO salt.
Bake in the oven at 180°C for 12-15min, depending on fig size.
Take your sage and gently deep fry them until it is crispy.
Add one leaf on each fig. (NB: Do not substitute with any other herb, instead leave it off)
