- Preheat the oven broiler for high heat.
- Place the fig halves, cut side up, on a baking sheet.
- Top each half with about 1/2 teaspoon goat cheese.
- Place one almond on each, press to push the cheese slightly into each fig.

- Remove from the broiler and let cool for 5 minutes.
- Arrange the figs on a serving platter and drizzle with honey and balsamic vinegar.
