Grilling: Figs Stuffed with Goat Cheese

Sometimes it's the most simple recipe that really shines. Take these grilled figs with goat cheese: they were made to be a very fast side to snack on while grilling pizza some afternoon, but it quickly became clear that these were the unexpected star of the meal.

All there is to them is cutting a pocket in some figs, stuffing them with goat cheese, grilling until softened, then finishing with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a sprinkling of rosemary.

For so few ingredients, they have a whole lot going on. The sweetness of the figs pairs great with the creamy, salty goat cheese, while the balsamic brings a little tang and rosemary adds woodsy flavor. All of these combine into one tasty snack perfect for a crisp, fall afternoon of grilling.
