  • Holiday primal appetizer :) mmm bacon

    devils on horseback! makes 24 bite size servings

    dates are higher in carbs so maybe a 20% thing however each "devil" is only 1 date. simple ingredient list too! optional add in: stilton cheese

    -24 medjool dates, pitted

    -12 slice(s) bacon, halved crosswise

    -1/3 cup(s) crumbled Stilton cheese


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place 24 toothpicks in a small bowl filled with water; let soak 15 minutes. Line a bakingsheet with parchment paper and fit with a wire rack; set aside.

    Halve dates lengthwise being careful not to cut all the way through. Place a small amount of cheese in the center of each date. Wrap a piece of bacon around each date. Secure bacon with a toothpick.

    Place dates on prepared baking sheet. Bake until bacon is cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.

    I'm totally trying this this weekend! Going to a holiday potluck, and I said I'd bring appetizers and salad, primary motivation being to make sure there was something yummy I could eat!

        There is a really nice restaurant in my town that serves "bacon-wrapped dates" as an appetizer. I've not tried it though.

          i lurrrrrrrrve bacon wrapped dates. I'd prefer without the cheese though.

          Cutting them in half is a good idea too - you can eat twice as many "pieces." hehe.

          I was at a friend's house a few months ago for a party and she had made bacon-wrapped water chestnuts. Something I would've never thought of but SO GOOD. mmm.
