Have you ever grilled fruit? How about a grilled fig?

I saw a photo on Pinterest last week of a slice of grilled watermelon. At first my mind couldn’t wrap around the concept of cooking watermelon, or any fruit for that matter.

Questions raced through my mind…did the heat destroy or add to the flavor of the watermelon? Did the char marks change the watermelons taste?

I had a box of figs sitting on the counter, so I decided to experiment and grill them to see what would happen.

(As you can see, there are a lot of pictures in this post. I had a really hard time choosing which photos to include in this post. They all came out beautifully. You can almost see the honey drip slowly, wrapping around these figs.)

These figs look beautiful on the grill. I kept the lid open and grilled them slowly so they wouldn’t burst. They are lightly brushed with organic cold pressed olive oil to prevent burning.

When they looked like they had softened, I brought them inside. I carefully made two deep cuts from the top down. I inserted a small chunk of brie. the heat from the figs helped soften the brie even more, melding the flavor into the figs.

Next, I drizzled honey and then sprinkled some cracked pepper on top. These figs would be a perfect appetizer if you need a fancy dish for a party.

The verdict: grilled figs are delicious and I can easily see grilling figs in my future. The flavors really work well together.

    These look delicious, can’t wait to try this recipe. I love figs and this recipe has me yearning for my fig tree’s to ripen fruit for me, SOON!

  2. Hi Sandy, love this post! I am doing a Summertime BBQ Side Dish Roundup and would love to include this recipe. Would that be possible? It is a fabulous idea and one I will hope to be trying soon.
    Blessings,
    Shari

    • Hi Shari, you are welcome to use my grilled fig recipe in your roundup. I appreciate your asking. These are a fun and easy addition to a BBQ menu. Thank you very much.

  3. These look so good! I haven’t had brie in a long time but now I really want some!

    • Thank you Sharon. My daughter is a brie addict. She went to sleep away camp and left half of a wedge uneaten. I didn’t want it to go bad, which is what got me thinking of things to do with it 🙂 I am glad you like the recipe, have a great afternoon.

  4. The pictures look amazing! I love the presentation. The recipe is simple and very delicious! I can’t wait to try it. Figs are coming into season now, so, this will be on top of my list.

    • Thank you Rini. Have you tried the cotton candy figs? They are some odd heirloom variety. There is one vendor, Capay Organics, that have them at our local farmer’s market. They are pretty incredible.

  5. Hi SandyI wanted to let you know I have included your amazing figs in my Summertime BBQ Side Dish Roundup posting on Saturday morning. Proper links given.
    Blessings,
    Shari

  6. Hi Sandi,
    I am seeing more and more people using figs in their recipes so I think I need to do some experimenting. These look absolutely fantastic and your photos are so beautiful! I love brie and I bet the combination was addicting! Thanks for a great recipe!

    • Thank you Robyn. Figs are addictive 🙂 I am hoping we beat the squirrels to the ones in our tiny tree this year. Those beasts are awful and my dog doesn’t like to hang outside and guard LOL. I appreciate your comment. Please let me know how your fig experiments go.

  7. This looks totally amazing. I can only guess how wonderful it tastes. Pinning this one for my next party!

  13. Farm Fresh To You says:

    What a great experiment! It is so wonderful how the brie melts right into the freshly grilled figs and the addition of honey makes for a delightful flavor combination. Thank you for this delicious recipe and all of the lovely fig photos.

  14. Oh how I wish we had figs in Minnesota! I’ve seen them in Whole Foods every now and then but they just don’t grow up here. These figs are out-of-control awesome. LOVE!
