Maybe you've heard of wrapping dates in bacon? We've switched things up a bit—wrapping bacon around apricots, instead. We've balanced out with sweet flavor by adding sage for a truly unique side dish.


  • 24 small fresh sage leaves

  • 24 large dried apricots

  • 8 slices bacon, cut crosswise into thirds

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • toothpicks, for serving


  1. Heat oven to 375º F. Place a sage leaf on each apricot, wrap with a piece of bacon, and place seam-side down on a baking sheet.

  2. Bake until the bacon is beginning to crisp, 6 to 8 minutes per side.

  3. Remove from oven and brush with the maple syrup. Serve with toothpicks.
