How to Cook Honey Glazed Bacon and Figs

  1. For the bacon:

    Fry the bacon slices in a skillet over medium heat. Cook them both sides until crispy. Coat the bacon with honey using a kitchen brush and add chili flakes to taste in the process.

  2. For the figs:

    Using the same skillet with the drippings from the bacon frying, turn the heat down to low, and add the rosemary sprigs.

  3. Keep adding the figs, honey, and water. Cover with a lid and cook for some 5 minutes.
  4. Serve the figs and bacon drizzled with the liquid from cooking. Garnish with the blue cheese.
