Recipe: Bacon-Apricot-Almond-Havarti Delight

img_6368Truth 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!

Bacon-Apricot-Almond-Havarti Delight


  • 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.
