Figs Wrapped in Bacon
"The meaty bacon plus the sweet, floral, honeyed fig is such a good combination. You will find it will be hard to stop eating them," says Chef Eric Ripert. This recipe is from his website. Photo by Gino Reyes.
- 6 figs, washed and peeled
- 6 bacon slices
- Fine sea salt
- Freshly ground pepper
Heat toaster oven to broil and line the toaster oven tray with foil.
Wrap each fig in a strip of bacon, trimming the bacon as necessary, and secure with a toothpick. Season with salt and pepper and place on the toaster oven tray.
Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the figs are tender.
