Devils on Horseback
Devils on horseback are a serious throwback to the 70s. This is just one of the many reasons why I love them, but then again, who wouldn’t love dates, cheese, and bacon in one lovely little package? Add nuts if you want! It really is crazy how much you can stuff into a medjool date. Jalapeno monterey jack and a smoked almond make a very nice stuffing, just so you know.
You will need:
16 medjool dates
16 pieces of cheese (I used goat mozzarella)
16 half-slices of bacon
Preheat oven to 400F. Have some toothpicks soaked in water, ready to go.
Slice your dates open to remove the pit. If you closely at the picture, you’ll see the pit in there.
Pinch the outer ends of the date together to create the pocket to hold the cheesy goodness.
Wrap. (These dates were so full we couldn’t actually fit the bacon all the way around. We kind of made the bacon into a little blanket instead.) Secure with a toothpick.
Bake for about 10 minutes, until the bacon is cooked and the cheese is melty. So easy.
Next up, a layered salad. Another throwback to the 70s, and some veg to go with that bacon.
See you Friday.
