Devil's On Horseback Gourmet Appetizers
Riding into English villages as Norman invader, you would need to look your best. You may believe that donning armor and carrying a cavalry spear would do the trick, but leave it to conquers from France to put a delicious twist on looking their bestworstor maybe just delectable. During the 11th century invasion on England, Norman raiders would ride into town wearing rashers of bacon, over their armor, to scare villagers. These bacon-clad warriors were nicknamed 'Devils on Horseback.' A culinary treat dating back to Victorian England, taking the date (armor) and wrappingit in bacon, serving what was coined a Devil on Horseback asan homage, in the cheeky English way. Our Devils on Horseback are served with sweet, tender pitted dates, stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese and wrapped in fully cooked apple-smoked bacon.
