These sweet, savoury bacon-wrapped bundles are also called Devils on Horseback and are a perfect snack to serve with almost any boozy beverage. You can also make these, before you head out camping, and roast them up on an open fire. It seems counterintuitive, but make sure you use thinly sliced bacon to wrap the dates. Thick sliced bacon won’t render out and you’ll be left with an unsatisfyingly chewy bundle of cheese and dates after you cook them.
Bacon-Wrapped Blue Cheese Stuffed Dates
- 12 dates
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- 6 strips of bacon, sliced in half
- Set the oven at 425℉. Slice each date in half, fill with blue cheese and pinch closed—repeat with all dates and blue cheese. Wrap each date with half a strip of bacon and arrange on a baking sheet.
- Roast in the oven for 12 minutes or until bacon is fully cooked. Serve warm.
