Michel Roux Jr's Roasted figs with bacon, blue cheese and Bridor's Fig Bread

Michel Roux recipe for Bridor's Frederic Lalos Fig bread with a roasted fig, bacon and blue cheese

Ingredients

  • • 1 Bridor Fig loaf
  • • 12 figs
  • • 12 slices smoked bacon (Alsace)
  • • 120g blue cheese
  • • 3 tbsp. clear honey
  • • Pepper
  • • Rocket and watercress to garnish
  • • Olive oil

Method

Take the figs and cut a cross halfway down and pull open, place a nugget of blue cheese inside then wrap each fig with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Place in a roasting tin and drizzle with honey and season with pepper.

Cook at 200°C for 8-10min until caramelized but not overcooked. Garnish with some rocket and watercress leaves drizzled with olive oil and some of the juices from the pan.

Great as a cheese course, starter and light lunch. Serve the Bridor Fig loaf warm to go with it!
