I’ve posted this recipe before, but since it’s fig season here on the East Coast, and because I’ve been loving these and over indulging for the past couple weeks, here it goes again, Bacon Wrapped Figs With Goat Cheese.
Bacon Wrapped Figs with Goat Cheese
- 10 figs
- 10 Slices bacon (lightly broiled or nuked)
- 1 Chunk goat cheese
- handful toothpicks
|Light your grill. Rinse and dry your figs, then slice them 1/3rd of the way through.|
|Take a small piece of goat cheese and stuff it into the fig. Wrap a slice of bacon around the fig and secure the entire morsel with a toothpick or two as needed.|
|Set over indirect heat on the grill to let the cheese melt a bit and the bacon finish cooking. Around 5 minutes.|
I used a thick cut bacon for the ones in the picture above, so instead of just putting them straight onto the grill, I gave them a quick zap in the microwave first. My kids also like bacon a bit crisper so I know this way they’ll eat them.
I’m hoping figs are in season in your neck of the proverbial woods, these are an amazing app and I’ve yet to run into someone who doesn’t love them (it’s bacon after all!). Enjoy and happy weekend!
