This recipe for Devils on Horseback is a great way to prepare stuffed bacon rolls for informal entertaining or to eat cold with a picnic. If you are worried when you read "fresh breadcrumbs" don't! It just means rub the soft part of a slice of bread in your fingers till it crumbles very finely.

PLEASE NOTE: This recipe calls for the GRILLING or BROILING of food. In most countries of the world, the term "grilling" refers to heat coming from above the food source. Significantly, in North America, it signifies heat from below the food (such as barbecuing). In the United States and Canada, when the heat source for grilling comes from above, grilling is termed broiling, and the pan that holds the food is usually called a broiler pan.


How to Cook Devils on Horseback

  1. Peel and finely chop the onion. Melt the butter in a pan and fry the onion gently it is soft and translucent (about 10 minutes). Stir in the sage and the breadcrumbs then use this mixture to stuff the prunes (you're just filling the space where the stone came from).
  2. Stretch the bacon a little using the back of a knife, then cut them in two and use each piece to wrap round a prune. Secure the bacon with a wooden cocktail stick then grill (broil) for about 4-5 minutes on each side until the bacon is crisp.

If you have a food processor, you can use the chopper to make breadcrumbs. I personally use a baby's food liquidiser (it's just the chopper mechanism!). I throw in the white of the bread, press the button and, five seconds later I have as many breadcrumbs as I can use!

I love these. I tried them with dates too. Halved the dates lengthwise being careful not to cut all the way through. Removed the stones. Wrapped a piece of bacon around each date and had myself a variation from prunes. Everyone loves these. They go down very well whenever I have guests.

I make these for every party I give! They are so popular I often have to buy the biggest box of dates I can find to make enough! I find that crumbling a little Gorgonzola or Stilton onto the prune before wrapping the bacon round it is also good.

I loved these!!! Unfortunately, almost nobody at my party did. That just meant more for me and my husband who loved them just as much as I did. I will definitely make these again.
