Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment:
a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip; a mini-muffin tin
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Cut 1 piece of bacon into 3 strips. Braid the strips and wind into the bottom of a mini-muffin cup to make a bacon cup. Repeat with the remaining 3 slices.
  2. Bake until the bacon is crispy, about 8 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Transfer the bacon cups into paper mini muffin liners.
  4. Combine the Gorgonzola and ricotta in a stand mixer and beat to combine thoroughly.
  5. Briefly cook the plum in the butter in a small pan over medium heat, then add the bourbon. Remove 8 pieces of plum for garnish, and add the cheese mixture to the pan. Mix thoroughly and turn off the heat.
  6. Place the cheese mixture in a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip, and pipe about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture into each bacon cup.
  7. Top each cup with some reserved plums and micro herbs.
