- 1 Bridor Fig loaf
- 12 figs
- 12 slices smoked bacon (Alsace)
- 120g blue cheese
- 3 tbsp. clear honey
- Rocket and watercress to garnish
- Olive oil
Take the figs and cut a cross halfway down and pull open, place a nugget of blue cheese inside then wrap each fig with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Place in a roasting tin and drizzle with honey and season with pepper.
Cook at 200°C for 8-10min until caramelized but not overcooked. Garnish with some rocket and watercress leaves drizzled with olive oil and some of the juices from the pan.
Great as a cheese course, starter and light lunch. Serve the Bridor Fig loaf warm to go with it!
