Figs and goat cheese and bacon and fire

Here is another simple and fantastic idea. Figs with goat cheese are a common combination that are often served with prosciuitto. Since I have a abundance of homemade bacon, I thought I would wrap them in that and throw them on the grill.

Lake Erie Creamery makes the best goat cheese I have ever had so I didn't feel the need to doctor it up with herbs like many recipes do, I just added some cracked pepper. I slit the figs down the side, stuffed some cheese in, wrapped them in bacon and put them on a skewer. After five minutes or so on the grill they were warm and the bacon was crisp. These things were heavenly.
