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.
Blue cheese or pecorino or mozzarella
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.
