Truth be told, this is my favorite part of the holidays! My sister has made these for several family gatherings and I can be found gobbling them down as soon as they hit the serving dish! The perfect blend of salty, sweet and creamy goodness! A fantastic appetizer for your Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve party! Your guests will devour and enjoy them!
- 24 dried apricots
- 3-4 oz havarti cheese, cut into small chunks
- 24 whole almonds
- 12 strips bacon, cut into halves
Turn on broiler and set a rack about 6-inches from heat source. This can also be cooked in a toaster oven quite nicely. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Cut a slit into each apricot. Squeeze a cheese chunk and almond inside. Wrap each apricot with a slice of bacon and secure with toothpick.
Broil for approximately 10 minutes until the bacon is crispy, turning once or twice so that all sides are cooked through. Serve immediately.
