With the holidays creeping up way too fast I’ve been searching for simple and easy hors d’oeuvres for parties (whether I’m attending or hosting). Whenever I see figs at the grocery store I have to pick up a basket – they are delicious. When I stumbled across this recipe on Spoon Fork Bacon, I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t thought of this combination before. These will definitely be making an appearance next week.
Do you have any go-to hors d’oeuvres you swear by?
