Devils on horseback

Recipe by:Ann M. Evans 
Author, Davis Farmers Market Cookbook, Revised Edition


  • 16 dates
    16 slivers Parmesan cheese
    4 or 5 slices bacon, each cut into thirds


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut a lengthwise slit in each date, being careful not to cut all the way through, and remove the pit. Tuck a sliver of cheese into each date, then wrap the date with a piece of bacon and fasten it with a toothpick. Place dates on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake dates until bacon is lightly crisped, about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly, then arrange on a platter and serve hot or warm. 

Makes 16; serves 6 to 8
