Bacon Wrapped Figs

Juicy fresh figs with crisp smokey bacon, a versatile dish served as a appetizer or side.IMGP9349

One of my favorite food combinations is sweet and salty. I think it hits all the notes that I love.

I have been waxing poetically about my friend Lisa’s fig tree so I have been able to enjoy some figs. The only thing with figs is that they have a very short shelf life. So unless you are going to dry them or put them in a jam, you better hurry up quick. This is why I decided to do this recipe with fresh figs. You certainly could use dried, but when you can get them fresh why would you want to?


Bacon Wrapped Figs


10 slices Bacon cut in half
15-20 figs
1-2 tablespoons honey


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut bacon in half. Wrap a bacon around each fig. Secure with a tooth pick. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Drizzle with honey and serve family style

Peace be with you,
