  • Rimmed baking sheet
  • parchment paper or foil


  • 24 small fresh sage leaves
  • 24 large dried apricots
  • 8 slices bacon cut crosswise into thirds
  • 2 tbs pure maple syrup


  • Heat oven to 375.
  • Place a sage leaf on each apricot, wrap with a pice of bacon, and place seam-side down on a baking sheet.
  • Bake until the bacon is beginning to crisp, 10 or so minutes per side. Oven's vary, so keep checking it.
  • Remove from oven and brush with the maple syrup.
  • Serve with toothpicks.



  • These can be made ahead of time. Wrap apricots and sage with bacon, flash freeze.
  • After frozen place in a freezer bag.
  • To bake from frozen, follow the same baking instructions, but increase the baking time by 5-10 minutes.
  • If you are concerned about the bacon coming undone, you can secure the bacon with a toothpick after you wrap it. I don't have an issue with this, but it's an option.
  • If you don't have maple syrup, you can use honey as a substitute, it will have a different flavor, but it's still that touch of sweet and still delicious.
  • Turning these half way through the cooking time is optional. One side will definitely become darker (the bottom) if you don't turn them.
  • Before lining your pan with parchment paper, crumple it up, then straighten it again, this makes it much more pliable and easy to use.
