Treat your guests with these cheese-stuffed apricots that are wrapped with bacon - a crispy appetizer.
Updated January 17, 2012

Ingredients

  • 1 cup crumbled chèvre (goat) cheese (4 oz)
  • 18 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 36 dried apricots

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. In medium bowl, place goat cheese; set aside.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, partially cook bacon in batches over medium heat 6 minutes or until brown but not crisp. Drain on paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet. Cook walnuts in reserved bacon drippings over medium heat 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted. Add walnuts and drippings to goat cheese; mix well.
  • 3
    Cut slit in each apricot. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoonful goat cheese mixture into each apricot. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each apricot; secure with toothpick. Place in ungreased 17x12-inch half-sheet pan.
  • 4
    Bake 10 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Serve warm.

  • Partially cook the bacon slices so they’ll be pliable and easy to wrap around the stuffed apricots, and then they’ll turn out crisp after baking.
