Fresh Fig Bites With Prosciutto and Rosemary


  • 8 Black Mission Figs
  • 8 sliced Prosciutto Crudo
  • 4 oz Fresh Mozzarella Ball
  • 1-2 tbsp milk or cream
  • Fresh Rosemary


  • In a food processor or blender pulse fresh Mozzarella cut in cubes with milk just enough to make a creamy but still chunky texture of stracciatella.
  • Tap fresh figs with a wet paper towel. Make two cross-cuts ⅔ through each fig. It’ll open like a flower.
  • On a serving plate arrange prosciutto slices and top with figs.
  • Using a pastry bag or a spoon squeeze a dollop of stracciatella in the center of each fig.
  • Garnish with a small sprig of fresh rosemary.


If you have to prepare this appetizer in advance, prepare all the ingredients beforehand. Cut figs and assemble the bites just before serving to keep prosciutto and mozzarella from drying.
