Bacon wrapped boiled figs stuffed with blue cheese with a bourbon caramel glaze are a great appetizer for any occasion. To make them start by precooking the bacon. Next, scoop out the figs with a melon baller and fill with blue cheese. Next wrap bacon around each fig. Then heat together bourbon, butter, and brown sugar and paint on the figs with a pastry brush. Broil for a few minutes until the bacon is browned. Lastly, sprinkle with some salt and enjoy.
- Bacon wrapped figs are a timeless treat that can be made at home. Add a little blue cheese and bourbon to make the appetizers something special.
- Remember to pre-cook the bacon before adding it to the dish. It must fully crisp in the oven without overcooking the figs too.
- Take a few simple precautions to avoid burning the cheese in the oven. An even brown glaze is what people want to see as needed.
“Pre-cooking the bacon ensures it browns and crisps fully in the oven without overcooking the figs or cheese.”
