Brie Stuffed Figs Wrapped with Bacon Drizzle with Balsamic Vinegar Appetizers Recipes
-3 figs fresh
-3 small pieces of brie cheese, skin removed about a teaspoon
-3 slices of bacon
-Drizzle of Sonoma Farm aged balsamic vinegar
Figs need to be handled with a gentle touch, so we will be using that word frequently. Gently rinse and drain figs. Gently slice the top off of each fig and set aside. Using a small knife gently create a very small opening in each of the figs to insert a small piece of the brie cheese. You will not need to remove any of the inside of the figs, because the fig is very soft inside and by moving the insides around a bit with the knife you will make a little cavity that can easily be filled. Fill each fig with about 1/2 of a teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of brie cheese depending on the size of your fig. Wrap each fig with a slice of bacon and place entire wrapped fig into a muffin tin. Once all figs are wrapped and placed into the muffin tins, bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Check at that point to see if the cheese is beginning to brown, then place lid of the fig on top and continue the cooking process. Bake an additional 10 minutes until bacon is crisp. Once bacon is crisp, remove and drizzle with Sonoma Farm aged balsamic vinegar.
