Updated Jan 23, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) fully cooked cottage or Canadian-style bacon
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) dried whole Calimyrna figs, stems removed
  • 30 pistachio nuts
  • 30 small fresh basil leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Spray jelly roll pan, 15 1/2x10 1/2x1 inch, with cooking spray. Cut each bacon slice in half.
  • 2
    Cut slit in each fig; stuff with nut. Place basil leaf on bacon strip; wrap around fig. Place seam side down in pan.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until bacon is brown. Serve warm with toothpicks.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    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.
  • tip 4
    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.
