So it's fig season and I've been eating figs like it's my job. I used to eat this dish uncooked, but one day I thought it would be cool for the cheese to be melted and for the prosciutto to be crisp.

I realize I tagged this as a snack, but I think it's also entirely reasonable to use it as a first course. Perhaps you could offer your guests 2 or 3 figs and a piece of a nice crusty baguette. This is incredibly easy and always impresses people.

You only need 3 ingredients. Figs prosciutto cheese of your choice (manchego is exceptionally good in this)

Heat up your oven to 425. Cut top off of fig, and make an X with your knife partway down your fig. Don't go all the way to the bottom.

Now take a small hunk of cheese and press it into the fig.

Wrap some prosciutto around your fig. It doesn't have to cover the entire thing.

Stick it in the oven for 6-7 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and prosciutto looks crispy.

Don't forget to let it cool or you'll be burnt by melted cheese napalm. Yay! Fig season!
