I made these for our appy on Sunday, and we LOVED them. I made 12 for 4 persons, and there were ZERO left. ;) They were super-easy to assemble. I found myself without toothpicks, so I wrapped each one so the seam of the bacon would be on the bottom, and I didn't turn them over. <br /> <br />As I said I would, I used the whole ramp. Folded the greens down and put the blue cheese (I used Point Reyes, my fave US blue) on the leaf right where the bacon wrapped around. <br /> <br />This recipe will definitely be rolled out again next year when ramps are in season. Too bad figs aren't in season at the same time. They would be good in this, too. <br /> <br />I took some pictures, but don't see where I could post any.

Prunes are always dried. If they were fresh, they'd be plums! This sounds delicious.

YOu can substitute a dried fig, date or apricot for the prune. They all work very well!

These were yummy! Made them tonight. Some I made without the prunes (for hubby). Next time, I will spiral the bacon, as I wasn't thinking and rolled them up straight. Not a bad thing, just kinda thick. I used Gorgonzola.

I f you wonder what the orange is inside the bacon wrap, I also tried adding s trip of roasted yam to the bundle along with the ramp. Also tasty!

A lot of big flavors here, but ramps have the strength to hold their own!

These look mighty tasty! And you've used the secret weapon - bacon!
