Made these the other night.....my guests compared them to crack! One important tip -- use a RIMMED baking sheet. Lots of excess grease that you don't want all over your oven.
Do I have to turn them over in the oven?
I understood these were VEGETARIAN recipes....hmmmmm...what kind of vegetable is BACON!?!?!?! I'm sure it's 4 STAR QUALITY...but in the wrong pew!
Not a big fan of dates or figs, but apricots, alright. Made them for a party and there wasn't anything left. Also try it with apple.
I really liked these and they went over well at the gathering I brought them to. I used pineapple sage leaves instead of regular sage. They definitely need more than 6-8 minutes baking though. The bacon took about 1/2 hour to cook.
I didn't have the sage leaves, and I substituted turkey pastrami to make them kosher. I agree that they took longer to cook, but they were a fabulous appetizer for Thanksgiving. Mustard on the side worked well also.
these are very yummy and pretty, but I found that they take a lot longer to cook than 6-8 minutes -- more like 15-20 minutes to ensure the bacon was cooked fully.
These are absolutely sensational! They are great hot but also a fabulous leftover cold snack...just don't forget the brush of maple syrup when you make them. My family gobbles them up hot or cold.
Excellent. Next time I would use a bigger sage leaf (bigger than the size of the apricot or 1/2 of the apricot) because couldn't taste the sage over the sweet apricot. This is a keeper recipe!! YUM.
these are awesome! they have been a hit both times i made them. . .they are my go to appetizer recipe. yum.
I recommend these to anyone looking for an easy , elegant appetizer. I made these for New Years and they were gone in minutes.
In my effort to cook and entertain more, I popped these in the oven just as some friends started arriving to my apartment Saturday night. They were an absolute favorite and guests loved the fact that the recipe was surprising in that it strayed away from the expected bacon and dates pairing.
