Baked Fig and Goats Cheese with Parma Ham

This is one seriously delicious combination - tangy warm goat cheese, sweetness from the baked fig and a slight saltiness from the Parma ham.

Oh yes, this is just perfect as a starter for any good dinner party.

Baked Fig and Goats Cheese with Parma Ham

Easy to make and no need for any fancy equipment - just a non-stick baking sheet or very shallow tray.

Print Recipe

To serve two you will need:
2 rounds of goats cheese - rind on
2 fresh figs
4 slices of Parma ham
a few baby leaves 
Balsamic glaze for drizzling - if you feel like being a bit fancy

How to do it:
Preheat your oven to 200C/400F of Gas 6

It's important you use goat cheese that has the rind on or it will collapse when cooking into a pool of goo.
Cut the top off of each fig and then cut a criss-cross in each fig taking care not to cut right through.
Pop the figs onto a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes then add the goats cheese round to the same tray.  Pop the lot back into the oven and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes keeping an eye in-case as you don't want the cheese to melt too much.  The figs should have opened up nicely.

Serve the cheese, figs on a plate drizzled with balsamic glaze (you can buy it ready made in any good supermarket) add two slices of Parma ham and some baby leaves.
