Some of these look pretty good. Figs seem to be getting more popular.

One of my favorite recipes is to take figs (I've always used dark figs) and slice them make a grilled cheese sandwich with -
 
white bread, blue cheese, sliced dark figs and drizzle of honey cook on a griddle with a little butter.  Not good for you but tastes delicious

Here's another page of fig recipe ideas. Scroll down to find pics and links. Wish I had more figs to harvest than I do this year.

http://www.greatbritishchefs.com/ingredients/fig-recipes

Most of the recipes seem rather complex, but the fig tart with cinnamon ice cream is very appealing.

Good Grief Gina,
I'm gaining weight just looking at those dishes. YUM! The one with the roasted chicken was kind of funny.
Thank you very much for the links.

The more things I try, the more I realize I like fresh off the tree, cooled down a bit if they're hot, the best.

Italian friend at work used to bring the chocolate covered figs to share with me before i retired.
According to him his sister would cut a small slice on side and stick an almond in there and roast them in oven at some point they were dipped in chocolate .
They were delicious.

Haven't tried cooling them, but fresh seems best so far. But then I don't have an excess yet to experiment with - which is a goal. :)

Made by others, I've had fig pizza. It was good, simply because it was pizza with cheese, not because of the figs (which were store-bought).

I did have an appetizer last week at someone's house that was very good. Even using infamous brown turkeys. They were sliced in quarters and had a dollop of gorgonzola and pesto on each wedge. Very simple and very good. With a really tasty fig as substrate, it would be even better.
