Broil, 6 inches from heat, 8 to 10 min. or until bacon is crisp.
Drain on paper towels.
Serve topped with a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar or honey.
Either the purple-black Mission figs or green Calimyrna figs work well with this recipe.
How to Tell When a Fig is Ripe
A ripe fig will be soft to the touch and may extrude a tiny bit of juice from the stem. To help retain the shape of the cut figs, cut the figs lengthwise in half through the stems.
