Ready to level up your appetizer game? This dish combines the sweetness of dried figs, the creaminess of bocconcini, and the saltiness of Nutrafarms' thick-cut farm bacon to create a flavour explosion that your guests will love.

Ingredients for Bacon Wrapped Figs: 

  • 1 pack Nutrafarms thick-cut farm bacon (approx 7 slices)
  • 7 dried figs
  • 7 bocconcini
  • 7 toothpicks to secure the bacon around the figs
  • 2 tbsp local honey
  • 1 tsp black pepper


Prep & Directions for Bacon Wrapped Figs: 

  1. Preheat a pellet grill (or oven, or BBQ) to 350°F.
  2. Remove the woody stem from the dried figs and open them up to create a bowl.
  3. Place one bocconcini inside each fig.
  4. Wrap the fig and bocconcini in bacon to form a little bacon cup and secure with a toothpick.
  5. Place the bacon-wrapped figs on the preheated grill and cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy, fig is gooey, and cheese is melted.
  6. Let the bacon-wrapped figs rest for 5 minutes.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together honey and black pepper to create the black pepper honey drizzle.
  8. Drizzle the black pepper honey over the bacon-wrapped figs.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
