How to make it

  • Put figs, wine and bay leaf into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  • Reduce heat, cover the pan and simmer gently until figs have softened, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Uncover and continue to simmer until wine is thick and reduced to just a few tablespoons.
  • Remove from heat and cool in the pan.
  • Fill a small saucepan with water, bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Add bacon and cook 5 minutes.
  • Drain thoroughly.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Carefully lift figs out of the wine.
  • Make a slit in the side of each fig and push a piece of cheese into the soft center.
  • Wrap a strip of bacon around the fig and secure with a toothpick or small metal skewer.
  • Set filled and wrapped figs in a small baking dish.
  • Bake figs until bacon is browned, turning them once so bacon browns evenly.
  • Remove baking dish from the oven and carefully transfer figs to a warm platter.
  • Drizzle with the reduced wine and serve warm.
