Fresh figs, glazed with a bit of honey, broiled to perfection topped with fromage blanc and bacon crumbles.
I have to say I am loving living in Southern New Hampshire these days. Being from the Lakes Region I lived in a pretty rural area up until our recent move down here. The best part is the shopping! I have stores walking distance from my house. Starbucks is only a mile away (Where we lived before didn't have one), a ton of great restaurants to explore and so many fun places to bring the kids.
Figs are great used in a variety of desserts, paired with a little savory perhaps. But nothing beats honey glazed broiled figs. They are so simple yet so incredible.
Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery has me hooked on their fromage blanc, it's the European answer to yogurt. It is unsweetened and the perfect topping to any sweet fruit.
Figs also pair so well with salty pork. What better topping to make my favorite snack even better... than bacon!
Honey Roasted Figs with Fromage Blanc and Bacon
1 tsp honey
3 slices of cooked crispy bacon
1/3 cup fromage blanc (or unsweetened yogurt)
Preheat your oven broiler to high.
Slice figs in half length wise. Place on a baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush each fig half with honey.
Place under the broiler for about 30-60 seconds. Watching carefully to make sure they do not burn. Once the top starts to bubble and they are slightly caramelized, remove from the oven.
Dollop each fig with fromage blanc and top with crispy bacon crumbles.
