Honey Glazed Figs With Purple Haze Cheese & Candied Bacon Bits
6 whole figs
3 tablespoon warm honey
3 strips bacon
3-4 oz. round of Purple Haze cheese
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon white sugar
- Preheat oven to 325°, bake strips of bacon until golden brown. Allow to cool, brush one side of the bacon with Dijon mustard and then heavily sprinkle with sugar to get a nice coating.
- Brulee the sugar with a kitchen torch until the sugar is a nice golden brown color. Allow sugared bacon to cool then chop into small pieces.
- Cut the figs in half lengthwise and layout on a small baking sheet. Brush lightly with warm honey.
- Stuff the middle of the fig with a teaspoon of cheese, then season with salt and pepper. Bake at 325° for 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle generously with the bacon pieces and serve.
