  • 16 dried apricots
  • 2 ounces provolone cheese, cut into 16 small cubes
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 8 pecan or walnut halves, toasted and halved
  • 8 slices turkey bacon, cooked according to package directions


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut a slit in the side of each apricot; gently pull apricot open at the slit. If desired, in a small bowl, toss together provolone cheese cubes and cayenne pepper. Place a cheese piece and a pecan piece into each apricot. Press apricots back together.
  2. Cool bacon slightly; cut each slice in half lengthwise. Wrap one bacon piece around each stuffed apricot. Use wooden toothpicks to secure.
  3. Arrange bacon-wrapped apricots on a greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake about 8 minutes or until heated through and cheese is softened. Serve warm.
