Grilled Figs w/ Rosemary & Chèvre
3 oz of Chèvre cheese, room temp
1 teaspoon of honey
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, plus whole sprigs for garnish
4 large figs
1 tablespoon olive oil
In a small bowl, combine the Chèvre cheese, honey, and chopped rosemary.
Lightly brush the figs with olive oil and grill the unfilled figs for 5 to 8 minutes, until they begin to brown, turning once.
Set aside until cool enough to handle.
Using a sharp knife, make an X on the stem end of each fig and gently squeeze it open from the blossom end.
Place a tablespoon of cheese mixture into each fig.
Serve at room temp.
