Ingredients

  • 1 (4-oz.) goat cheese log, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 6 large fresh figs
  • 12 toasted pecan halves
  • 12 ready-to-serve bacon slices

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together goat cheese and basil. Cut figs in half lengthwise. Place 1 heaping teaspoonful goat cheese mixture and 1 toasted pecan half on cut side of each fig half.
