BAKED FIGS WITH CHEESE AND HAM

Here's a very simple but versatile recipe. It can be served as an appetiser or light dish if served with a side plate of mixed green salad seasoned with oil and salt.

Ingredients (Serves two):

6 large fresh figs
6 slices of fresh goat’s cheese
3 slices of Parma ham cut in half lengthwise
Freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons of acacia honey

***

Heat the oven to 200°C.

Make a cross-shaped cut on each fig. Place a slice of fresh goat's cheese in the middle of each one. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.

Wrap each fig in a half slice of Parma ham. Bake for 5 minutes.

Serve hot, with a drizzle of honey on top.
