Fresh Figs with Maple and Hickory Smoked Bacon Glaze Yum
Fresh figs lightly drizzled with maple and hickory smoked bacon glaze is like a little taste of sweet and salty heaven on earth.
  1. Starting at the top, cut figs crosswise towards the base of the fig without cutting through the fruit, leaving 1/2-inch uncut at bottom. Arrange figs on serving platter.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, fry the bacon so that it pliable and meaty, not crispy. Remove from pan and set aside on a paper towel to cool. Cut bacon into 1/4-inch pieces.
  3. Discard bacon grease in the pan, reserving 3 tablespoons for the glaze. Return the skillet to the stove and reduce heat to low.
  4. Add bacon grease, olive oil and scallions to the pan, sauteing for 1/2 minute to infuse the flavors. Whisk in the vinegar, syrup, mustard, salt and pepper and bacon.
  5. Pour dressing into serving bowl and let cool. Stir glaze before lightly drizzling 1 teaspoon on the inside of each fig. Serve with blue cheese, goat cheese or your favorite soft cheese.
