It’s quite easy for one person to put away a whole tray of these; the combination of salty ham and melted cheese with the sweet figs is heavenly, especially served hot from the oven. Serve them as a lovely starter with a few bitter salad leaves, or a decadent bite with drinks.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
olive oil, for greasing and drizzling
180g halloumi cheese
12 large basil leaves
6 large ripe figs, halved lengthways
12 long slices prosciutto ham, about 100g
1 tablespoon runny honey, or to taste (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and lightly oil a 30 x 20 x 5-cm roasting tray.
  2. Cut the halloumi into six 5-mm slices, then cut each slice in half to make 12 small rectangles.
  3. Fold a basil leaf in half, place it on the cut side of a fig half and top with a piece of halloumi. Wrap in a piece of prosciutto and transfer to the roasting tray. Repeat.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and roast for 10 minutes, or until the prosciutto is starting to crisp up and the halloumi is hot. Serve immediately, drizzled with honey, if you like.
