Figgy Piggy

I have to admit,
I chose this recipe based on the name.
Figgy Piggy
It sounded fun!
I knew I had to make it.

I know that's not a very scientific method of choosing a recipe,
but luckily for me,
it turned out to be a very yummy choice!

The recipe was only for the game hens,
but I decided to make brussels sprouts
with bacon and cranberries...

And mashed potatoes with smoked gouda,
to go along with it...

A nice bottle of wine...

And the end result
Ta Da...


The sweetness of the figs, played so nicely against
the saltiness of the bacon.
And the lemon, thyme and garlic made a lovely
"au jus" type sauce to spoon over top.

Make again?
A definite yes!

You can check out the recipe here.

Have a lovely weekend!

Figgy Piggy - too funny! That definitely looks delicious!! I do love figs. My favorite sandwich is a grilled fig and goat cheese sandwich with apple sauce on the side. I know it sounds a little weird but I love it!
Great post Meeling.
Have a great weekend everyone!

That is a cute name for a dish! We had a big fig tree at our previous house and I could never figure out what to do with them!

That meal looks so tasty!

Mashed potatoes with smoked gouda, I am going to have to try that.

Thanks for sharing.
