Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs Stuffed with Stilton Cheese

Simple to make, yet always a big crowd-pleaser. The figs are cooked in port wine for added flavor, then stuffed with cheese and wrapped with prosciutto for a savory combination.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings, appetizers

Ingredients:

4 brown Turkish figs, ripe
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
2 ounces Stilton cheese
3/4 cup Chateau Elan port wine

Instructions:

  1. Cut figs into quarters and place them in a saucepot with the port wine and bring to boil, simmer and reduce by 2/3. You should have a little less than a 1/4 cup of port at a syrup consistency. Allow the port syrup to cool.
  2. On a cutting board, tear thin slices of prosciutto lengthwise in half and place 16 pieces on the board. Take a piece of fig and place it at one end of the prosciutto and place a small piece of Stilton cheese on top of the fig and roll the fig with the prosciutto. Continue this process with the remaining figs, Stilton cheese, and prosciutto.

To serve, arrange the figs on a platter and drizzle with the port wine syrup.
