Fresh figs are in season, and I want to share with you a new way to enjoy them. Toss your figs on the grill! They make an incredible brie stuffed grilled figs appetizer! Just drizzle on some honey and serve them up.

I saw a photo on Pinterest last week of a slice of grilled watermelon, and it really caught my eye. 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 taste of the watermelon? How would Brie stand up to the grilled fruit sweetness?

My kids wondered how you grill fruit, so we grilled these figs together. I almost had to wrestle the brie away from my daughter for this recipe. She LOVES brie and didn’t want to let us use it in this appetizer recipe.

These figs are made for snacking! If you love appetizers as much as we do, you will want to check out all of my gluten free appetizer recipes!

Figs come in many different colors and varieties. My personal favorite is the Candy Stripe variety, but those are difficult to find. They are neon green with a darker green stripe and taste like candy! Here are more delicious grilled fruit recipes to try!

I had a box of brown figs sitting on the counter that were about to spoil, making these the perfect fruit for us to experiment with. This recipe will work with any variety of figs. There is something magical about brie and figs. The gooey brie cheese flavors mesh with the sweetness of the figs and honey!

As you will see, there are a lot of pictures in this post. It was so hard to choose which photos to include in this post. They all came out beautifully. You can almost see the honey drip slowly, wrapping around these figs. Figs are also delicious to use in this fig chutney recipe.

Recipe step-by-step directions:

Figs on skewers cooking on a grill.

Step 1: If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes so they don’t burn.

Step 2: Push your figs through the skewer. Leave a little space between each one.

Step 3: Lightly brush with organic cold-pressed olive oil to prevent burning.

Step 4: Grill with the lid open slowly so they won’t burst.

Step 5: When the figs look like they have softened, remove them from the grill.

Step 6: Carefully make two deep cuts from the top down. Insert a small chunk of brie into the center of each fig. The heat from the figs helped soften the brie even more, melding the flavor into the figs.

Step 7: Drizzle honey and then sprinkle some cracked pepper on top.

These figs would be a perfect appetizer if you need a fancy dish for a party. If grilling figs seems too “weird” to you, you can drizzle honey over raw figs!

  1. 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!

    1. Thank you Lauren….I wish they were more hardy I would ship some your way 🙂 They are pretty soft and would end up mush by the time they got there.

  2. 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.

  3. Mmmm, figs, brie and honey, can’t go wrong with that! We’ve been on a major grilling spree lately, taking advantage of all this gorgeous weather! Just pinned this recipe! 🙂

    1. 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.
