Figs, stuffed with goat cheese, wrapped in bacon...drizzled with a balsamic reduction...BOOM!

I cut a dozen figs in half, scooped out a little bit of the inside, stuffed it with some goat cheese, and then pushed the halves back together. I partially cooked the bacon, and then wrapped bacon slices around the stuffed figs. I secured the salty-pork-goodness around the fruit with a toothpick. I put them under the broiler for just under two minutes, then drizzled them with a balsamic reduction before we all devoured them. FYI: you can purchase pre-made balsamic reduction, but it's easy to make on your own. To make, simply pour 1 cup of balsamic vinegar into a sauce pan over medium heat, and let it cook down until there's about 1/3 cup left...the remaining bit is a thicker, sweeter tasting balsamic!
