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. Ingredients 24 small fresh sage leaves 24 large dried apricots 8 slices bacon, cut crosswise into thirds 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup toothpicks, for serving Directions 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. Bake until the bacon is beginning to crisp, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Remove from oven and brush with the maple syrup. Serve with toothpicks.
