Because our fig trees have more ripe figs than we know what to do with – I decided to re-post a great recipe that always goes down well in our house, every August.
Serve as a starter or as a main course. Delicious!
Simply pluck the fresh figs from the tree and slice off the top and bottom of each fruit. Cut a cross into the top of each fig and stuff with a square of goat´s cheese. Wrap in a rasher of smoked bacon and skewer with a cocktail stick.
Bake in a hot oven for approx 20 minutes.
That´s it – enjoy!

yum ….those sound very easy to make, no fuss and delicious!
Yes, they are, Ashlyn – very easy and good as a starter or a main dish.
Bet you can’t eat just one! 🙂
Now that’s making my mouth water and my tummy growl … 🙂
Try it, if you can – it’s absolutely delicious!
It’s also simple to make and impresses guests! lol
It’ll have to wait till I get back to Oz – with luck, just about in time for fig season 🙂

These sound too delicious for words. Thanks for the recipe. 🙂
They are, and you´re most welcome!
Wow, those look amazing! Next time I brave cooking, those will be on my list. How hot do you make the oven?
About 200C. They are very easy to make and look SOOO impressive! 🙂
That looks so delicious Marianne. I love fresh figs as stand alones, but this sounds like it’s over the top!
The flavours merge together to make something absolutely wonderful!
Those are calorie free, right?
Only if you eat them piping hot, straight out of the overn! 😉
Ah, okay, that makes sense. I’ll be sure to keep that in mind 🙂
Yum – will definitely be making these when summer & the fresh figs arrive. Although the Poor Man´s Potatoes will be a dinner item very soon 🙂
Well, I can definitely recommend them both to you EllaDee. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
We’ve got free figs too but goat’s cheese is prohibitely expensive over here and bacon not easy to find. I’ll keep it in mind for the future though.
You could always miss out the bacon and just stuff the figs with ordinary cheese 🙂
Noted down! Gracias!
oh my gosh, yum!!!
Trust me, it´s absolutely delicious! 🙂
