Variation Tip
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.
Do-Ahead
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.
Did You Know
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.
