Step 1: Ingredients
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.
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! http://noblepig.com/2010/04/baconwrapped-apricots-with-sage/.
Step 3: Wash, Slice, and Seed
Cook the bacon until done. You want it soft enough to wrap the apricot.
Step 5: Roast The Apricots
While they are roasting prepare the rosemary by washing and cutting a few sprigs.
Remove the roasted apricots from the oven.
Step 6: Method
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.
