Ingredients

  • 24

    dried apricots (about 7 ounces)

  • 3

    ounces plain Havarti, cut into 1/2 - 3/4-inch squares 1/4-inch thick

  • 24

    almonds (about 1 ounce)

  • 12

    strips bacon (about 12 ounces) cut in half crosswise

  • 24

    toothpicks

  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Heat a gas grill to high or prepare a hot charcoal fire. Pry open the apricots and stuff a piece of cheese and an almond into each one. Wrap a piece of bacon around each apricot, trimming as necessary so it overlaps by 1/2 inch, and secure with a toothpick. Season apricots all over with pepper. Reduce the grill heat to medium (scatter the coals a bit or raise the grate if using charcoal). Using tongs, grill the apricots on all sides with the grill open, propping them between the bars to hold them up on the narrow sides. Move the apricots around often to avoid flare ups. Cook until the bacon is crips all over, about 6 minutes total. Serve while hot.
