Last summer I had an amazing dessert at a Boston restaurant called Lineage, which consisted of warm Black Mission figs topped with blue cheese. It was tantalizingly delicious!! So simple and yet, it really was the perfect ending to a summer meal. I saw some gorgeous organic Black Mission figs at Whole Foods a couple days ago and decided to try recreating this dish. It was incredibly easy and satisfying.
Roasted Black Mission Figs with Crumbled Blue Cheese and Honey
8 oz Black Mission figs, stemmed and sliced in half
1/4 – 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese, depending on your preference
Honey for drizzling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place fig halves in a baking dish, cut side up. Evenly distribute crumbled blue cheese over figs. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the figs are hot and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey before serving. Serve immediately.
