Devils on Horseback

Figs + blue cheese + bacon = my take on devils on horseback

Figs + blue cheese + bacon = my take on devils on horseback

Traditionally devils on horseback is an appetizer made of a prune stuffed with mango chutney or cheese and wrapped in bacon.  Figs are in season and go perfectly with blue cheese and bacon so this is my take on the appetizer with the catchiest name.  The bacon on top is home-cured and because it was thickly-sliced before being sauteed I think a piece on top is more appropriate than a whole slice wrapped around the fig.  No need to break out the Roaring Forties (or other uber-pricey blue cheese) for this recipe but one on the creamier side will melt best.

The how-to is extremely simple: Halve the figs, place a piece of blue cheese on top and a piece of sauteed bacon on top of that, bake at 400F until the cheese is slightly melted (3 – 4 minutes).  A very delicious balance of salty and sweet that would make an excellent passed appetizer or with a frisee salad a great first course.
