Honey Glazed Bacon-Wrapped Figs

Sure. We all know that everything tastes better with bacon. And we’ve heard of bacon-wrapped figs. Well, I’ve taken this dish and elevate it with a honey-dipped rosemary infusion with an optional side of orange + honey balsamic vinaigrette. Sounds FANCY, eh? Fancy, yes. Complicated, no. 

Simple. Festive. Yummy. Fits the bill for the perfect holiday appetizer if you asked me.

A bite size of heaven!

Recipe: (1) cut fig into quarters (try not to cut all the way through) (2) dip a twig of rosemary in honey (coat twig thoroughly) (3) place the honey-dipped rosemary in the center of the fig (4) wrap fig w/ bacon (5) lightly brush the bacon-wrapped fig w/ honey (6) season w/ a dash of salt and pepper (7) bake at 325 for about 15-20 mins or until bacon is golden and cripsy

Special thanks to our indoor rosemary pot for always being there when I need it most. This recipe wouldn’t be the same without you.

(got sidetracked)

The final product!

So with this you are done or you can make a side of orange + honey balsamic vinaigrette. Vinaigrette recipe: 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey, 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice, a dash of salt and pepper. Beat the vinegar in a bowl (using fork or whisk) with honey, orange juice, salt and pepper. Slowly beat in the oil, whisking constantly until oil and vinegar combine.

Drizzle the vinaigrette on top and serve! If you are planning to host a festive party, you must try this!

PS. Before serving, toss the baked rosemary twig and replace with a fresh one for garnish.

  4. Fabulous recipe. One of my nephews makes bacon-wrapped figs for the holidays but they aren’t like these. I’d love to bring these to the celebrations this year. Thanks!

      • OMG! You really do a fantastic job. I love all the recipes, fashion and everything else you share. But the photography is the icing on the cake. I’m not very good at it. It has been my biggest struggle since trying to launch a jewelry business.

  5. Those look delicious! I really love figs and I’m always looking for new ways to cook them.
    I love your indoor herb garden too :)
