Baked Figs with Blue Cheese Toasted Walnuts and Maple Syrup

This recipe works with any blue cheese, I used Costello blue for it's mild and creamy flavour.

If you don't like blue cheese just serve the baked figs with Greek yoghurt and replace the walnuts with toasted pistachio nuts.

Pre heat the oven to 190C

Split the figs and open them up. add a small piece of blue cheese to the centre of each one.  Drizzle with maple syrup and bake on the centre shelf of the oven for 8 minutes.  Meanwhile, toast some halved walnuts in a dry frying pan, shake the pan occasionally to prevent them burning.

Serve the figs in bowls, pour over the hot syrup and juices from the roasting tin and sprinkle the toasted walnuts over.
