Bacon Wrapped Grilled Figs

I love figs and this is a great time to buy them. They had some good looking ones at the store the other day so I impulsively bought them. On the drive home, I was thinking how I’d cook them. Then, in a sudden inspiration from Denise, I decided to wrap them in bacon!! Why not?! Bacon makes everything delicious. So, here is an easy fig recipe.
