Bacon Wrapped Chevre Stuffed Figs

Life is too short to avoid the elegant side of foods... 
Luckily,  these are simple and quick to make!
Complexity Level:  Easy
Bacon Wrapped Chevre Stuffed Figs
What You Need:
1 lb. Dried White Turkish Figs
1 lb Thick Cut Hickory Smoked Bacon
8 oz. Sheppard's Chevre (Goat Cheese)
Honey (to drizzle)

To start, slice each fig in half.  This can be tricky being dried fruits.  To make it simple, flatten our as many wrinkle as possible before cutting.  I would also not to remove all stems/ stem nubs as these are tough and hard to eat.

After slicing spoon out some of the fig center filling.  I would save this-- cookies, dressing, etc... it's a good thing to have on hand!

Next, press about 1/2 tsp of cheese into each fig.  Since each fig is different in size, I would eyeball the portions, but as long as each fig is filled, it is OK.  Next, wrap each fig with bacon.  I ripped the bacon into pieces, and depending on the fig size, I chose the right sized strips to securely wrap each fig.

Finally bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit fo 10-12 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp.  Remove and let sit 5 minutes.  Before serving, drizzle with honey and sick a tooth pick into each for easy handling.

I hope you enjoy!  You can't go wrong with honey, goat cheese, and Bacon!

Happy Eats!


  1. I use fresh Mission figs for this, but...

    YES Yes YES Yes yes!!!!!

    Served over a bed of arugula and balsamic. *drool*

  2. YES!!!!!!! Fresh figs were M.I.A in Utah so I tried dried.... And with honey (as well as I can only imagine arugula and balsamic reduction) they were a HUGE hit!! Hope you both enjoy :)

  3. I make these with dates and wrap them with a basil leaf and a strip of prosciutto. Sometimes I substitute Manchego cheese for the chèvre...they're always a big hit at parties!

  4. AMAZING! Hands down. I will have to try those next!!! Thanks!!!
