 Saute’ Fresh Figs with blue cheese

Fresh Figs are in season and readily available in the grocery stores and Farmers markets.  I purchased a package of 6 figs at Trader Joe’s this week for $3.49 and added a carton of blue cheese crumbles to my cart then came up with a great appetizer or side dish that is easy and looks great whether you are dining alone or serving a small group of friends while camping!

6                      fresh figs, rinsed and cut in half lengthwise

2 – 3 tbsp.        blue cheese, crumbled
