Here is another great recipe for holiday parties. The sweetness of the apricot goes great with the saltiness of the bacon and the sage just gives this small bite another depth of flavor. These took me a very short time to make and you can even assemble them ahead of time and freeze them (unbaked) for up to a month in advance.
Bacon Wrapped Apricots with Sage
from Real Simple
24 small fresh sage leaves
24 large dried apricots
8 slices bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
toothpicks, for serving
Heat oven to 375º F. Place a sage leaf on each apricot, wrap with a piece of bacon, and place seam-side down on a baking sheet.
Bake until the bacon is beginning to crisp, 6 to 8 minutes per side.
Remove from oven and brush with the maple syrup. Serve with toothpicks.
