Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 12

    dried black Mission or Calimyrna figs

  • 1 1/2

    cups dry red wine (375 ml)

  • 1

    bay leaf

  • 6

    slices bacon, cut in half crosswise

  • 4

    oz cheese, such as Asiago, Manchego, or aged Cheddar, cut in 12 slivers (125 g)

  • Preparation

  • In a small saucepan, bring figs, wine, and bay leaf to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until figs are soft, about 20 minutes. Uncover and simmer until wine is reduced to about 1/4 cup (60 ml). Remove from heat; let cool.

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Place bacon on a rack set in a baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels.

  • Carefully cut a small vertical slit in the side of each fig (reserve wine syrup). Insert a cheese sliver and mould fig into shape—stem on top. Wrap with a bacon strip, secure with a toothpick, and arrange in a shallow baking dish.

  • Bake until bacon browns, about 15-20 minutes, turning dish once to cook evenly. Transfer to a warm platter and drizzle with warm wine syrup.
