Girl and the Grill: Grilled Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto

I conquered the broiler last year, but now I turned it up a notch and have started on mastering a new hot skill; the grill. We love using the grill on a hot day because we can make dinner quickly without adding extra heat inside the house.

These have made an awesome summer appetizer in our house, as we wait for our brats and burgers to grill. I'm biased though, because wrapping anything in proscuitto might be delicious to me :)

You could also try adding some rosemary or goat cheese for a fun twist!

-Thinly sliced prosciutto
-Olive oil

1. Slice figs in halves
2. Wrap thin slice of prosciutto around each half. One piece of prosciutto per fig seems to work best
3. Drizzle with olive oil. I don't add salt because the prosciutto has such a salty flavor.
4. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side. So about 10 minutes total. Should form a grilled shell around the Fig.
5. Eat!
