  • Bacon (12 slices)
  • Dates (12 sliced in half)
  • Goat Cheese (6 oz)


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. The bacon strips are too long, trim them a bit shorter (cut them down to 3/4 length).
  3. Cut your Dates in half (long ways) and open them up. Remove the pit if they have pits. Fill each with 1/2 oz of Goat Cheese.
  4. Wrap all of your stuffed Dates with Bacon and place on a baking sheet
  5. Bake for 10 min, then flip/turn the “Devils on Horseback”, and bake for another 10 min (or until golden brown).

  • The bacon tends to get greasy, so when you remove them from the pan, put them on a plate with paper towels to catch the extra grease.
  • It’s a good idea to put aluminum foil down on your baking sheet. It makes clean up easier.
  • Use all the bacon if you want, but I think it makes it too salty/greasy.
