Looking for a yummy No-Fuss salty and sweet appetizer or snack? Try making these EASY bacon wrapped figs stuffed with goat cheese and pecans! The combination of these three ingredients is YUMMY. You can easily adapt this idea to your taste.  For example, use dried dates if preferred, or also change the cheese to Gorgonzola or cream cheese, if desired.

I’ve gotta say this is one of those ideas you have to trust is good, because I realize it may not look as appealing in photos!  LOL.  I’ve served these at parties and they are the first to go.

Bacon Wrapped Figs


  • 12 Dried Figs
  • Goat Cheese
  • 6 pieces bacon, cut in half
  • 12 pecan halves *optionalbacon-wrapped-appetizer


  • Cut fig down the middle without cutting it all the way. Open and stuff with a goat cheese and pecan.
  • Wrap with a half piece of bacon, and secure with toothpick (Thinner cut bacon works best for these.)
  • Place on baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, until bacon is cooked.
  • Drain on a paper towel.

This would be a fantastic addition to a cheese board appetizer with assorted nuts, olives, cheeses, etc. Also, if you need a yummy grain-free appetizer for a holiday party, this is an excellent option!

    I just had these at a family members celebration last week and they were delicious, even for those who think they don’t like figs or the way they look! I TOO promise they are terrific!

      Thanks Lynn! I thought I always didn’t like figs until recently…they rock! Especially like this 😀

    Everything is better wrapped in bacon!!!

      My brother says.

    • couponer

      I’ve always been a firm believer of this principle. But this makes me question it.

  5. Anna

    I make these with dates instead of figs. So good!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Anna! I’d like to try that 👍

    • JTCL

      Yep, same here! We make them with dates. They are always a hit!

    • GAmommyof4

      We get these at a local restaurant. $8 for 5 and worth every penny!!! I’m super excited to try making these myself!

    • Sarah

      Yes, I have a friend from church who makes bacon wrapped dates for our parties every year. They are a huge hit! I can’t say I had the nerve to try them, but I believe everyone else, lol

  6. Christine

    Where do you get figs in the store? Or do you use fresh ones

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      They usually have dried figs in the produce dept or near dried fruit like raisins…I get the big bags from Costco 👍

      • Christine

        Thank you so much as I want to make these tomorrow.
        Have you ever grilled them vs baking in the oven?

    • Laura

      I think Aldi has them right now too!

  7. lala

    Bacon wrapped water chestnuts are good too, how do you go wrong with bacon anything!?!

  8. nydia

    I make these with dates, stuff with goat cheese and wrapped with turkey bacon. Always a huge hit!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)


  9. Sarah H

    I have been doing these for years with a dolce Gorgonzola and heating in a skillet. Taught my son, too … It has made him a very popular guy at college!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum! And I bet 👍😀

  10. Laura

    Yes! I just had these at a wedding and they were incredible!! 😍

  11. Dee

    Split a date and stuff it with a water chestnut, wrap in half a slice of bacon and bake till the bacon is crispy. Yuuummmm!!!

  12. Nicky

    These are awesome with fresh figs, and I use prosciutto which cooks quicker than bacon

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great!! Thanks Nicky 👍

  13. Tasha

    Trader Joes sell these, just pop in the oven for 12 minutes! So good!!

  14. lily

    We make with only dates and bacon. You dip it in olive oil with herbs. It is really good! All our guests love them.

  15. jill

    I made these a few weeks ago for my housewarming party. On the same platter I also did the exact same thing with dates. They were both delicious!!! I personally preferred the dates and so did quite a few others. But both tasted so good that it was hard to pick a favorite
