  • 8 fresh figs, such as Mission, rinsed and patted dry
  • 3 ounces goat cheese, crumbled or cut into 8 large chunks
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Multigrain baguette slices, for serving, optional


Preheat oven to 425°F. Trim stems from figs and slice in half lengthwise. Sandwich fig halves with cheese; arrange figs standing up in a 6-inch heavy- bottom skillet (preferably cast-iron). Drizzle with honey and oil; sprinkle with 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper. Roast until warm and bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with baguette slices, if desired.
