Serve your guests with these baked figs wrapped with bacon – a delicious appetizer.
package (12 oz) Canadian bacon
packages (8 oz each) dried whole Calimyrna figs, stems removed
small fresh basil leaves
Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 15x10x1- inch pan with cooking spray.
Cut each bacon slice in half. Cut slit in each fig; stuff with nut. Place basil leaf on bacon piece; wrap around fig. Place seam side down in pan.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until bacon is brown. Serve warm with toothpicks.
Calimyrna figs are large, squat, green-skinned, white-fleshed figs grown in California. You can use dried apricot or peach halves, folding in half around the nut, instead of the figs.
Assemble appetizers 3 to 4 hours ahead of your party and refrigerate. You may need to add 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
Cottage bacon is taken from smoked pork shoulder. Although it is a leaner form of bacon, it does have more fat and more flavor than Canadian-style bacon.
