I love when FIG season is in, I just can't wait to pick those figs. It's a fruit with not a lot of hassle, just pick, open and eat, just delicious. Besides picking and eating , they are so many other uses, fig pie, fig maramalade, dry figs, fresh figs, baked figs etc. It can even be used as a meze ( appetizer)
I was at forum talking with some members and soemone directed me to this recipe and thank god they did. Once I read the recipe I said I must Stuffed Red Figs with bue cheese and wrapped in bacon so mouthwatering, I definitely have share it with my readers. It's so easy to make, cut, stuff, wrap and bake. This savory treat is so addicting your guests will be asking for more. Serve with a Chardonnay wine. I really love this wine!
