Devils on Horseback, RevisedPosted: December 29, 2012
Here’s a super simple appetizer recipe that will have any crowd you’re with begging for more – or for the recipe. I’ve made this three times over the holiday season, each time it was a huge success! I got the idea from the Three Boars restaurant on 109 street, who serve Devils on Horseback. Their dates are stuffed with blue cheese instead of goat. To make it more all around friendly, I opted for goat cheese. These were delicious.
There are only three ingredients to this recipe – Dates, Goat Cheese, and Bacon.
First things first, pit the dates. This may prove a little more tricky than you’d imagine. The dates are sticky and hard to pit with a cherry pitter; so often, I had to stick my finger in the date and push the pit out the other side, leaving me with really sticky fingers.
Et Voila! The best appies you will ever serve!

You will need:
30 dried dates, pitted and cut in half
1 500g container of spreadable goat cheese
1 pack of bacon
Pit the dates and cut them in half. Next, put the goat cheese into a plastic baggie and pipe the cheese into the hollow space within the date. Cut bacon strips in half an wrap them around the dates. Bake at 375 for 20-25 mins, until bacon is crispy. Enjoy, a lot.
