No, Devils on Horseback is not a bad Ghost Rider prequel. It’s food. It’s bacon-wrapped food.
Every reader just thought, “I’m listening.”
It’s prunes (dried plums to the marketing-minded) stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon. The mixture of the flavors — the sweetness of the plum, the creaminess of the cheese and the bacony saltiness — is some strong medicine.
Let’s pause here for a moment to give a heads-up to the uninitiated. I know you don’t need this to be pointed out. I’m talking to the guy on the internet next to you.
Anytime you’re reading about food and you see the phrases “stuffed with cheese” or “wrapped in bacon” you stop what you’re doing and pay attention. If you see both of those phrases, mutter to yourself, “Yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout.”
The Smokin’ Hot Wife just made a big plate of them for Sunday dinner, along with a pork roast, mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. It is amazing how a woman this hot with a goober husband like me still feels compelled to crank out the kitcheny awesomeness. It’s good to be the King.
Variations & Culinary Cousins
Dates instead of prunes.
Chutney instead of cheese.
Oysters instead of prunes (called Angels on Horseback).
Bacon instead of… yeah, like anything is ever “instead of” bacon. We love you, bacon. Thanks for being so bacony.
• Slice each prune in half, but do not cut all the way through.
• Wrap the prune around each piece of cream cheese.
Good ideas: Appetizer. Side dish. Hors d’oeuvre.
Better idea: Football food.
Best idea: Laydown a trail of these on fancy foo-foo lookin’ plates from your front door to your bedroom for your bride to follow. Yeah, that’s right. Bacon and romance. You’re welcome, young punk. (This probably won’t work well if you have a dog. Or it will work very, very awkwardly.)
I didn’t steer you wrong with the Scotch eggs and I’m not steering you wrong now.
