Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs and an Easy Summer Cheese Plate.
Let’s combine summer and weekend dreams on a plate!
Friday is made for cheese boards. And the coldest glasses of wine. And really late desserts. You know?
I don’t think it’s any secret that I have a little thing for cheese boards. Borderline unhealthy infatuation?
Oh my gosh FIGS. How I love them so. I’ve been a fig freak for ages and every year around this time I go on huge fig binges, buying as many as I can at once.
Say that five times fast: huge fig binge. I can’t even type it five times fast.
I think I could photograph 30 figs and call it a recipe. I even just love to look at them.
Also, let’s talk about this beautiful specimen.
Or rather, I shall call it: pricey yet necessary cheese plate obsession.
A few years ago, Heather sent me some honeycomb in a little care package and I’ve been freaking over it ever since. I don’t always add it to my huge cheese plates for family because in the past, they’ve looked at me like UM WHAT am I supposed to do with that? And it’s gone to waste and once the honeycomb is out, there isn’t much saving it.
But if it’s just you and a friend or just your and a glass of wine (which, let’s be honest, can also be called a friend), get on that honeycomb train.
[sidebar: you can find honeycomb at some specialty/grocery stores, but I’ve also got this one online before!]
I’m kind of embarrassed to share something so simple, but apparently this is super simple recipe week considering I shared a smoothie bowl and an easy chicken dish. I didn’t really intend for it to turn out that way but ohhhhh well. It did.
And even though I’m standing on the edge of horrified, this is such an awesome summer snack!
Little figgies, stuffed with cheese and wrapped with prosciutto that gets crispy and crunchy in the oven. It is the ultimate flavor explosion with the sweet and juicy fig, the creamy, tangy cheese and the crunchy, salty bacon. I die I die I diiiiie.
Summer is the season of snack dinners. I used to do this all the time before I had a baby. Now that I have a baby, I do it unintentionally but it’s never this pretty. Cheese, crackers, bread, wine – it’s sooo dinner when it’s 90 degrees and gorgeous outside. I only wish I was staring at this and past my line of vision was the island of Nantucket or Harbor Springs??
So can we agree that this is a tray full of dreams and that the only thing better would be eating it together?
(and maybe an ice cream cone, like, the size of our heads after.)
Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs and a Summer Cheese Plate
- 12 fresh figs, whichever variety you prefer!
- 6 ounces goat cheese, chevre
- 12 slices prosciutto
- 1 block or round honeycomb
- 1 baguette, sliced
- 6 or 8 fresh figs, sliced
- 2 cheese wedges, my current favorites are humboldt fog and montemore
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Take each fig and slice and “x” in the center to create a little opening. Press about 1/2 an ounce of goat cheese inside the center of the fig. Wrap each fig with a slice of prosciutto. Place the figs (sitting upright if possible) on a baking sheet. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the prosciutto is crispy on the outside.
- Assemble the tray with the honeycomb in the center and the cheeses surrounding it. I like to have extra, unroasted/unstuffed figs for eating too! Serve with lots of wiiiiine.

I LOVE STUFFED FIGS! And cheese plates. And summer. So, naturally, I love this!
As soon as I saw the title I said out loud “oh god yes” and being that I was at DeLallo yesterday I know that they have figs. For a dollar a pop. Sigh. Saturday dinner here I come.
you know i love my delallo’s but whole foods has containers for 4-5$ (more than 4-5 figs.) ;)
I want to dive headfirst into this plate. With a side of rose. That is all.
SO amazing!!! But where are you finding fresh figs in Pittsburgh right now?!?! I haven’t seen any yet and I cannot wait!!!! Delallos perhaps?!
delallo’s does have them, but whole foods has multiple varieties and tons of them! (at least they did 1.5 weeks ago)
Oh my goodness!! I definitely must get to Whole Foods!! I live in Greensburg (near the Jeannette Delallos!) so I don’t get to WF often but I work in Pgh (the Strip!) so for all the figs it’s worth heading straight to a WF!!!!! I am sure someone down here in the Strip has them but I cant think of where..
So…what are you supposed to do with the honeycomb?
eat it just like regular honey! spread it on your cracker or baguette or drizzle it on the cheese and figs – it just has a little texture and is fantastic!
Awesome! Didn’t know I could eat the actual comb! :)
I could definitely eat 10,000,000 of these.
Oh my goodness! Proscitto-wrapped figs?! I’m in love.
And I’m totally ordering myself some honeycomb, I need to jump on that gorgeously sticky bandwagon.
This is the prettiest post! Making those figs asap
Wonderful recipe! Reminds me of fig inspired dishes from The Girl and the Fig in Sonoma.
Everything on that plate is stunning, especially the figs & honeycomb.
“But if it’s just you and a friend or just your and a glass of wine (which, let’s be honest, can also be called a friend)”
Life of a grad student perfectly described.
I can’t get over how beautiful the photos in this post are!
you seriously must be that friend that everyone wants to invite everywhere. Bring your adorable child and some figs to my place anytime Jess. i’ll supply the wine.
and the ice cream. :)
I am so lucky. I have a fig tree and it’s loaded! Wish you all could come over and get some. I will definitely make this figgy cheese plate. It looks divine. I didn’t know you could eat the honeycomb either. Will try it. And this is to Melanie Z. I was born in Greensburg, PA. and grew up in Jeanette! Wish I could get back there for a visit sometime (I’m in California now)
What a small world Linda!! I didn’t even know Jess lives in Pittsburgh when I first discovered her blog!! I’m so jealous that you have a fig tree.. I was looking into getting one that I could take indoors in the winter but didn’t end up ordering one. One can never have too many figs :)
Interesting idea Melanie. I never heard of anyone bringing a fig tree in for the winter but why not try it! You could keep it trimmed down (like a large bonsai). I planted my tree when it was about 3 or 4 feet tall and now it’s about 20 feet! I can’t reach the top ones, but the birds and squirrels have a ball. There is a variety of fig called Panachee that is unbelievable. A friend of mine has one. The fruit is yellow with green stripes and the inside is strawberry colored. Best figs I ever tasted.
I have spent way too much money at Whole Foods putting together cheese/charcuterie plates…and don’t regret it even a little!! I’m going to have to “borrow” some figs from my parents yard and make this recipe. It looks amazing! I love your photographs, they’re always stunning!
This looks amazing! My aunt has a huge fig tree and I love it when she gives me a bowl of them. It is hard to find good ones in the store or at the market.

I love figs! I recently have been putting them in smoothies, but stuffed with cheese and wrapped in prosciutto? hello heaven.
This is my DREAM cheese plate. Yes to every single thing here, these stuffed figs, the honeycomb, these gorgeous photos!
So beautiful. I’ve been cruising through the figs from Trader Joe’s. My favorite is putting them with honey on top of my oats! I love cheese plates though and I haven’t tried throwing figs in the oven yet, what a fun recipe :)
Just wanted to voice my support of photographing a plateful of figs and calling it a recipe. This beautiful cheese plate is more impressive, and I definitely want to bury my face in it, but I’m also a big fan of naked figs in all by their lonesome.
1 – I’m making this
2- what Rose’ is in the pic and what is your fave? I LOVE Brangelina’s Miraval! Whispering Angel is my second fave.
3 – If you haven’t tried Brillart Savarin (it’s a buttery french brie-type of cheese) you need to ASAP. Whole Foods has it.
That is beautiful. A good cheese plate and wine is my go to meal when I am home alone because my husband doesn’t agree with me that it qualifies as a meal. I also am curious about that Rose- please share! And thank you for sharing a place to buy honeycomb online! Living in a newly developed city means y grocery stores sucks and I order a lot online.
You are killing me with that cheese plate. It looks amazing, so decadent. I can’t wait to spoil myself with a dinner like that!
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Xo

awwww! I am so happy that you love the honeycomb! This plate is everything I could want in one place- especially hen the wine is included!
This looks like a decadent addition to one of the last summer garden parties I am having next weekend. Of course I’ll also include some wine!
This cheese plate looks to die for! I can’t get enough of goat cheese and pairing it with figs + prosciutto sounds like heaven in one bite. Or two bites…no…one bite :)
These sweets are really good i can’t wait by seeing this i want to eat them.

This is absolutely lovely! My husband just announced that we are entertaining work guests…..tonight. I had no idea what I was going to make, but now I know, cause I just happen to have figs, cheese, and honeycomb!!!! You are my savior.
It’s no longer summer, but I *so* want an excuse to make this cheese plate, while I can still find fresh figs. It’s just gorgeous, and the photos are incredible! I feel like I should invite people over just so I can make something like this and feel fancy!
