Bacon and Cheese Figs

These canapès are quick and easy to make whenever you have fresh figs available and generally very popular. Your may replace the blue cheese with a pecorino for punch or a mozzarella for a more neutral taste.

Fresh figs

Streaky bacon

Blue cheese or pecorino or mozzarella

Olive oil


Preheat your oven to 190℃.

Cut a cross into the figs, about halfway through, so that the fruit opens up without falling apart.

Place a thin slice of cheese into the cross you have cut into each fig.

Now wrap a strip of streaky bacon around the outside of the fig, overlapping it, and then place the figs into an ovenproof dish.

Drizzle the figs with olive oil and a generous amount of honey.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, until the bacon is cooked and crispy on the edges.

Serve warm.
