    Evie in L.A.'s Note:

    I had this in an upscale Polish restaurant in Santa Monica. This is my version of what was served. I have served this to various parties, even people who claims not to like figs loved it.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    appetizer

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      soak figs in hot water for 15 minutes, or until hydrated and soft.
    2. 2
      Trim fat from bacon, so only 1/3 or less of the bacon is fat.
    3. 3
      Bake or fry bacon until half done,edges curl but still soft.
    4. 4
      Drain bacon on paper towel.
    5. 5
      Wrap each fig with bacon and secure with toothpick.
    6. 6
      Broil assembled appetizers in oven, until bacon is crispy, about 5 to 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Watch it, so bacon does not burn.
    8. 8
      Serve as an appetizer with red wine.
    9. 9
      The coombination of sweet jammy center with crispy salty bacon is a crowd pleaser.

      I was given this at a dinner party last night and thought it was sensational! I couldn't understand how the figs were so soft-It didn't occur to me I needed to soak them until I read your instructions. Thanks for the recipe.

      These were good but perhaps I didn't rehydrate the figs enough as they were dry. I'd like to try with fresh figs or even prunes or dates or dried apricots or a mixed platter? Good flavor mix. Thanks for the idea to play around with.
