Pancetta is cured Italian bacon; unlike American bacon, it isn’t smoked. You’ll find it at specialty stores, Italian markets, and some supermarkets. Don’t use American bacon: It takes too long to crisp on the grill.
Hollow a split fig with your thumb and then add a teaspoonful of filling.
Wrap up the figs, but not too tightly. Be sure the pancetta is very thinly sliced so it stays on the fig and cooks before the fruit and filling become too mushy.
