I'm always looking for easy recipes around the holidays.
There's so much to do that when I find an appetizer with a big payoff in taste for minimum effort, I feel like I've won the lottery! While my husband Kyryl enjoys cooking, I always find that less time in the kitchen and more time spent around the punch bowl is the best way to enjoy the season. That's why I love this Super Quick & Easy Stuffed Figs Recipe. It's an original I made in a pinch this past season and I figure it's sure to delight your guests. (Pun intended, and I apologize but I couldn't resist).

Super Quick & Easy Stuffed Figs
Prep time: 15 min.
fresh figs (as many as feeds your guests)
your favourite savoury flavour of Boursin cheese or goat cheese
a small bowl balsamic vinaigrette
a small bowl of organic honey
Cut the tops off your figs and slice into them making an 'x' from the top to about 3/4 of the way down. You just want them to be able to open like a four petaled flower but not fall apart.
Gently shove a bit of your choice of quality spreadable cheese or goat cheese into the fig.
Place a few walnuts in a sealable plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin or masher until you have little walnut pieces. Make sure the pieces are around half a centimetre. Don't powderize them. This recipe is brilliant because of the variety in textures.
Sprinkle your crushed walnuts on the figs.
Take a small spoon and drizzle a bit of balsamic over all your figs.
Now drizzle a bit of honey.
