Recipe: Dried Plums + Goat Cheese

The holidays are here! It's time to whip up a quick, healthy, and slightly indulgent appetizer... dried plums with bacon and goat cheese will do just the trick. The sweetness of the prunes paired with the salty bacon and creamy goat cheese makes for the perfect combination. You can view the original recipe on the California Dried Plum Board website here


12 pitted dried plums
5 1/3 ounces goat cheese, divided into 12 equal portions
3 slices bacon, each cut into 2-inch pieces (to total 12 pieces)


For each dried plum, make a lengthwise slit and spoon a portion of cheese into slit; wrap with a piece of bacon. Secure bacon with wooden pick; arrange on rack in broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat 6 to 8 minutes or until browned and barely crisp, turning once. Serve hot or warm.
