Devil’s on Horseback

Here’s a recipe my mother would make for parties. It’s quick and delicious finger food. Children love everything about it – especially participating in the making of them!

The same number of prunes or dates and almonds and half the number of rashers of bacon!

Roast whole peeled almonds dry in the oven for 15 minutes at about 325 – until golden brown. Stir or shake them from time to time so they brown all over. Remove from oven and cool.
Turn the oven up to 400 degrees.

Pit the prunes or dates – if they are dry soak them in freshly boiled water for 30 minutes first.

Stuff each prune or date with an almond.
Wrap tightly with half a rasher of bacon so the fat is showing. *
Secure with a tooth pick.
Pack into a foil lined tray.
Bake for 15 minutes or until crispy
* Strong bacon is better – Canadian or English style.
Some recipes stuff the prunes with mango chutney – i have never done that and don’t like the idea of it!
