MMM these were so delicious! I'm not sure what season figs are, all I know is that the Amish Market (yes, I'm obsessed) sells them for a very nice price (a small carton filled with all those pictured above for under $3!) and they are so delicious. I eat them plain, with yogurt, or drizzled with a little honey.
Tonight I decided to make a savory side dish and stuffed them with little chunks of goat cheese (also cheap from the Amish Market!). I (aka my sidekick grill master) put them on the grill and covered them for just a few minutes until the goat cheese melted. They are delicious like that, or you can throw a few chopped nuts on top. I chose to top them with walnuts, and it turned out to be a wonderful, sweet and savory, soft and crunchy piece of goodness that I eventually saved for dessert because of how rich it was.
It is a wonderful side dish for a bbq dinner, or a delicious and sophisticated dessert!
Figs, leftover eggplant bruschetta, typical tomato and avocado salad, some fresh bread and my favvvv (ok I promise my next post won't have zucchini in it!) grilled zucchini.
