Also known as ‘Devils on Horseback’. People go crazy for these bite-size snacks, which only take minutes to prepare. This is an easy recipe to experiment with-you can substitute almonds for the pecans, prunes for the dates, or prosciutto for the bacon.


  • 24 Pecan Halves

  • 24 Pitted Dates

  • 8 Slices of Bacon (Not Thick-cut), Cut Cross-wise into Thirds

  • 1 ½ to 2 Cups Mango Chutney


Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a bakingsheet with parchment paper.

Insert a pecan half into each date . Wrap with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until bacon is crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and serve with mango chutney for dipping.
