Bacon wrapped figs you ask? Yes. Bacon wrapped figs. I know it sounds weird, looks crazy, and yet; I promise they taste like something wrapped in bacon should taste – which is delicious. I picked up some beautiful organic black figs (which happen to be in season right now) from Trader Joes the other day and with the help of little Row Row we went to work!
Figs and Bacon
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350.
Step 2: Cut each bacon strip in half.
Step 3: Wrap a piece of the cut bacon around each fig and place seam down on a baking sheet.
Step 4: Bake in your pre-heated oven for approximately 40 minutes or until the bacon is crisp. Make sure you baste the figs halfway through the cooking time with the bacon grease.
Let them cool for a few minutes before you chow down because the inside of each little fig treasure will be like searing hot molten lava. Not fun.
