Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs are the perfect little appetizer. They are sweet, tangy, and crunchy all in one small bite. Plus, they are quick to make and have only four ingredients!
Use good quality ingredients
Since these Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs contain only four ingredients, be sure to use the best ingredients possible. You can use any variety of fresh figs that you like such as Black Mission, Brown Turkey, Calimyrna or Tiger Striped. I found these beautiful Tiger Striped figs so that’s the variety I used today. They are firm, yet sweet which is what you want to offset the tanginess of the goat cheese.
If you don’t care for goat cheese, you can substitute it with cream cheese, mascarpone or even a blue cheese like Gorgonzola.
I always toast my nuts before using them as it brings out the natural oils and deepens their flavor. It takes less than five minutes to toast them in a skillet on the stove top and is totally worth it.
Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs are the perfect little appetizer
Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs are easy to make and require no actual cooking. They’re perfect for a cocktail party along with a my Greek Cheese Puffs and Grilled Artichokes. You can make these appetizers in advance and bake the Greek Cheese Puffs just before your guests arrive!
Joe and I have a great groups of friends that we invite over for dinner parties quite often. We do the cooking and some of them even help with the clean up. (That’s one way to make sure to get invited!)
When we have dinner parties, we like to put a small tray of appetizers out on our big kitchen island. As guests come over they have something to munch on, while we are putting the final touches on dinner and everyone can socialize in the kitchen with us!
