When you see grocery stores stocking up on figs, you know the holidays are upon us. Now, how many of you actually buy figs on the holidays, or ever? I don't. I'm not really a big fig eater, however I did change my mind when I came across these two recipes I'm about to give you. These appetizers are delicious(!!) and very simple to make. I promise you your guests will eat every last one of them up! :)

Bacon-Wrapped Figs Stuffed w/ Goat Cheese and Pecans

  • 6 dried or fresh figs, whole
  • 1 tub of crumbled goat cheese
  • 6 pecan halves, toasted
  • 3 slices of bacon, cut in half

1. Preheat the broiler. With a knife, make a slit in each fig and stuff them with goat cheese.

2. Press the pecan into the cheese. Then wrap half a slice of bacon around each stuffed fig.

3. Place the figs on a baking sheet and broil them for 5 minutes or until the bacon is evenly brown and crisp. Serve! (but be careful, they're hot!)

Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs

  • 4 large whole figs, halved
  • 1 tub of goat cheese (if you're making both recipes, one tub will be more than enough for both)
  • 1 package of prosciutto
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Fill each halved fig with goat cheese.

3. Take a prosciutto slice and tear it in half . Wrap 1 half around each cheese-stuffed fig and set on the parchment paper, evenly spaced. (Use a toothpick to hold it in place, if needed.)

4. Combine the pumpkin pie spice and honey in a small bowl and drizzle the honey evenly over each fig.

5. Place on the top rack of the oven and roast for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove and serve immediately!
