Deeeeelicious. My neighbor gave us fresh figs off his tree and I searched All Recipes to find a recipe to use them. I struck gold with this!! I read all the reviews and decided to try 2 versions. 1 with just goat cheese the other with a combo goat/ricotta. Stick with just goat! The best. Also I REALLY struggled with cooking the bacon all the way through without demolishing the figs in the cooking process. So I tried pre-cooking the bacon in the micro first but when wrapped around the figs and broiled the bacon ended up burning. The best solution was to just make a little pile of proscuitto on top of the figs!! No wrapping no toothpicks lower fat and not greasy but very similar taste! I can't wait until next year's fig crop is ripe... and neither can my neighbor! He loved 'em as much as we did!! Read More

This recipe is great with dried dates. I made it last Spring before figs were in season. But last week I tried it with figs and it was a disappointment. In fact we each ate one and threw the rest out. So great concept but dates work so much better. Read More

this is a unique appetizer and everyone loved it. I accidently got dates instead but they were very good. I 'd make it again because it tastes different - sweet and salty at the same time. Read More

My sister-in-law said that they were the most exquiste thing that has ever touched her lips. Excellent recipe. I prepared them the night before and zapped them under the broiler right when the family came. So easy so good. Read More

Great appetizer. I changed it a bit I excluded the pecans (just because they were not on hand) and used prosciutto instead of bacon. The prosciutto is already cured so you don't have to worry about it cooking through and it crisps up quickly. I broilled them for 5 minutes and then flipped them and broilled for another 3-4 minutes. Thanks for the recipe it was a hit at the party I went to. Read More

It taste really good but not very pretty. Maybe if I precook the bacon some it would turn out better. I had to cook it for forever it seemed before the bacon was cooked. I even had to turn them over which caused the cheese to leak out even more. Half of the cheese came out because I had to broil it for so long. Thanks for the recipe though. It overall did taste great. Read More

Excellent - I have smaller figs on my tree so I used a 1/4 piece of bacon per half fig and laid it on top of the fig instead of wrapping it. I also cooked the bacon slightly in frying pan ahead of time to reduce the broiler time and take some of the bacon grease out. Read More
