Wrapping bacon or ham around bits of dried fruit and grilling or broiling them is a popular way to make appetizers in the south of France. This easy grilled bacon-wrapped figs recipe is a perfect example of why the cured meat and fruit combination is a tradition. The mixture of crispy grilled ham and caramelized figs is irresistible.
