Got this one from Cooking Light. The original recipe can be found at this link:
I haven't had any luck actually finding fresh black mission figs, so I've used whatever dried figs I could find and rehydrated them a bit with near boiling water. I've also done this in the oven instead of on the grill. Just put them on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or so.
12 large fresh black Mission figs, trimmed
2 ounces blue cheese, cut into 12 cubes object
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into 12 strips
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Dash of salt
Cut each fig in half, cutting to, but not through, base of fig. Place 1 cube of cheese inside each fig; gently close to seal. Wrap one prosciutto strip around each fig.
Combine vinegar and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until thick, about 10 minutes. Cool.
Place figs on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until prosciutto is crisp. Drizzle each fig with balsamic syrup.
This should serve 6.
