Figs and Prosciutto

I first had the fig-prosciutto combination at a popular eclectic pizza joint called Figs in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Figs is the brain child of celebrity chef Todd English. Figs is a few steps from English's flagship restaurant Olives(another favorite in Charlestown). When we crave for a "different" kind of pizza, we head over to Figs. Figs offers a delicious figs and prosciutto pizza. The marriage of figs and prosciutto is a classic sweet and savory combination. I used these two ingredients in our appetizer the other night.

Slice figs and top with Prosciutto di Parma and brown sugar.
Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until the brown sugar caramelizes on top. The prosciutto will crisp up and mingle nicely with the figs and brown sugar.
