Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 Black Mission figs, stemmed and halved
  • 1/3 Cup crumbled blue cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet large enough to hold all the figs without crowding over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the figs and shake the pan until the figs are coated with olive oil. Using tongs, gently turn them cut side up and top each half with about 1 teaspoon blue cheese. Transfer to the oven and roast until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. 

Fig Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Fig Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
