Fresh Figs with Balsamic, Goat Cheese & Proscuitto

I love fresh figs, so sweet and pretty!  I came up with this appetizer recipe that is so yummy!  I hope you try it or come up with your own variation!

12 Fresh Figs, Halved
Balsamic Vinegar
8 Oz Goat Cheese
8 Oz Proscuitto, Cut in half Lengthwise

Lay halved figs on a baking sheet, cut side up.  Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.  Stuff with goat cheese.  Wrap with Proscuitto, twisting the Proscuitto on the last wrap.  Drizzle with honey.  Can be served as is or put under the broiler for 5-10 minutes to crisp up the Proscuitto.
I like to place on a bed of micro greens.
