As we dive into fall, and the season of dinner parties, I am always looking for easy appetizers to make that will cause our guests to stop and notice (and eat!). These stuffed figs that Lisa created for us have become a great go-to in our party prep rotation. I’ve started keeping the ingredients on hand as an easy snack to whip out for after school guests – that is, the ones that are over 4 feet tall.
To make the stuffed goat cheese and pistachio figs you’ll need: Fresh figs (halved), Goat cheese, Pistachios (finely chopped), black pepper to taste, 2 tablespoons of honey, 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar – preferably fig balsamic vinegar
Start by placing the fig halves on a serving platter and lightly pressing about 1 teaspoon of goat cheese into the center. Sprinkle pistachios and pepper. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together honey and balsamic vinegar. Drizzle the mixture over your figs. Serve and Enjoy!

so sad fig season is coming to an end…
I’ve never tried a fig before, except in a Fig Newton! These look amazing and I love pretty much anything with Goat Cheese! So perfect for Fall!
These look so good! I am always on the look out for new appetizer recipes to wow ’em at BBQs and dinner parties. This is on my list!
I love fig season! I am allergic to honey but always put a little on my figs and goat cheese anyway ;)
This recipe sounds delicious!
Utter gorgeousness…making this stat…SO wish I still had access to the wonderful fig/balsamic vinegar that I found EVERYWHERE in Tunisia….With so few, precious ingredients to this marvelous offering, I would so loved to have “honored” it with the good stuff!!
Thank you for culinary brilliance…in an amazingly minimalist way!
