Introduction: Roasted Bacon Wrapped Apricots

Picture of Roasted Bacon Wrapped Apricots
 We had a bumper crop of apricots this year.  We had a few left on my tree so I decided to experiment with them.  I made roasted apricots and wrapped them in bacon and cheese.   My husband loved them.  I thought they were pretty good myself. 

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
8 Apricots washed, sliced, and seeded
1 Small wedge of Brie cheese
Agave nectar (few drops optional)
4 Slices  cooked bacon
16 tooth picks not shown
16 small springs Rosemary 
Several Tablespoons granulated sugar

I did not use a lot of utensils:  cutting board, knife, bowls, skillet, cookie sheet.

2 Servings

Step 2: Cook Bacon

I cooked the bacon on top of the stove because I like it crispy and very well done.  Scooch was thinking I could simplify this recipe by preparing the apricot by wrapping the uncooked bacon around the apricot, adding the cheese, rosemary,  and sweetener and bake it in the oven.  I don't have much experience in baking fruit with bacon in the oven so I found a recipe online very similar to mine.  Here is the link if you decide to bake the wrapped apricot all together in one shot.  Please share if you would like to.  I would love to see another way to cook this.  It is so good!

Step 3: Wash, Slice, and Seed

While the bacon is cooking  . . . . . . wash, slice,and pit the apricots.
Cook the bacon until done.  You want it soft enough to wrap the apricot.

Step 4: Coat the Apricots

Coat the apricots in the sugar and place them on the cookie sheet.

Step 5: Roast the Apricots

Roast the apricots about 7-8 minutes in the broiler.
While they are roasting prepare the rosemary by washing and cutting a few sprigs.
Remove the roasted apricots from the oven.

Step 6: Method

Cut the bacon slices in half.
Place one slice of bacon on a plate.
Center the apricot over it.
Add one drop of Agave nectar.
Trim a piece of Brie cheese and place it in the center.
Add a rosemary sprig.
Pull up the bacon and secure with a tooth pick.

Step 7: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

We both liked these very much.  I think the Agave nectar and the Brie cheese gave it a nice flavor.  The bacon was wonderful.
The best part was . . . . . . . they were quick and easy.

Now I'm wondering if you could wrap the bacon and apricot and put them in the broiler together? Cut down on a step or two. . .

sunshiine (author)scoochmaroo2012-07-13

You could I suppose, I cooked the bacon separately because I like my bacon very done. You probably know how long it takes to kill any bacteria. I would not cook the apricot any longer than I suggested because it is so delicate.

Thanks ChrysN! They were!

I'll have to take your word for it, I don't think using vegetarian bacon would be quite as good, though I think I will try with just the brie, rosemary and roasted apricots. It is still a bit early here to get apricots but when they are ready I will be sure to try it.

I have eaten fake bacon before. You might be right about that because I think fake bacon taste better crispy. You might use it for garnish. Let me know what you think. We are older and our taste buds aren't as some.
