Balsamic Honey Glazed Figs

on August 10, 2015


It is still well into the triple digits in Arizona, so lighter meals have been my preference lately. Last night I made chorizo mussels and paired it with balsamic glazed fig crostini. I had never made fresh figs at home previously. When I saw the figs in the store, I knew I had to make something fun with them. I was in the mood for a crostini, so a goat cheese paired with glazed figs sounded delicious. I cut the figs in three and brushed some balsamic and honey on them before popping them in the oven. Then I paired the figs with whipped goat cheese, I infused with truffle oil and honey. It was the perfect bite. These would be great with prosciutto too! Such a healthy appetizer or snack! Three easy ingredients and you have an appetizer worthy of entertaining.

Balsamic-Honey Glazed Figs


  • 8 fresh figs (cut vertically into thirds)
  • 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of honey


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place cut figs in a baking dish. Whisk together balsamic vinegar and honey. Brush or spoon the balsamic mixture over the cut figs. Bake for 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
