Getting ready for the weekend?  The wine is chilled.  We have a spot for you.

The figs are ripe on our tree.  We picked a few to share this appetizer with you, while you enjoy your wine.
Fresh Figs stuffed with Blue Cheese Wrapped in Prosciutto
Serves 6

Ingredients:
6 fresh figs
1/4 cup good quality blue cheese
3-4 prosciutto (thinly sliced, cut lengthwise)
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Directions:
Turn the oven to broil.
Cut the figs in half, and place a piece of the blue cheese on each half.  Wrap the prosciutto around each fig half, covering the cheese.  The ends of the prosciutto should overlap.
Place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes until the prosciutto begins to color and crisp.  Remove.  Season with sea salt and pepper.  Serve warm.
Enjoy!
