The best part of this recipe is that you can add as much cheese and bacon as you like. To add more toppings, just press some bacon or cheese down on the center of the fig. You can even lightly scoop out a little bit of fig center, but if the fruit is super sweet and good, then don't waste it. Push the filling down into the figs and enjoy!Use whatever nuts you'd like to top the figs-pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc... Whatever you enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 8 fresh figs , cut lengthwise in half
  • 4 slices cooked bacon , cut into small pieces
  • 3-4 ounces blue cheese or goat cheese , softened and crumbled
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped roasted nuts (pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc...)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • optional-grilled or toasted bread to serve the baked figs on

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place cut figs on a lined sheet pan. If any of the figs don't sit level, make a small flat cut across the bottom of the fig so that it sits flat when you add the toppings. Top the figs with the crumbled cheese and bacon. Press the nuts into the cheese to help keep them from falling off.
  3. Bake the figs for 10-15 minutes or until the figs are soft or to your desired texture and the cheese is melted. After removing from the oven, drizzle honey over the baked figs.
  4. Enjoy the figs warm or at room temperature. Serve as an appetizer or spread figs on toasted bread and serve with your favorite glass of wine.
