This recipe is the perfect easy dinner party-worthy appetizer: it's quick to make and calls for a short list of ingredients. You can even make it ahead of time—simply mark the figs on the grill and reheat them in the oven just before adding the cheese and serving. Most importantly, the flavor combination is divine—figs get a smoky char from the grill before they're topped with a tangy, slightly sweetened goat cheese.

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (400°F to 450°F). Stir together goat cheese, milk, honey and thyme in a small bowl. Spoon mixture into a small zip-top plastic bag; snip a ¼-inch tip off bag corner.
  2. Lightly coat cut sides of figs with cooking spray. Place figs, cut sides down, on oiled grates; grill, uncovered, until slightly softened and grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer figs to a serving platter; sprinkle evenly with salt. Pipe goat cheese mixture evenly onto fig halves. Garnish with thyme leaves. Serve immediately.
