I needed to make a few eats for the party and needed to keep it super simple.
Because time? There was, like, none to spare.
Apparently Oprah heard my silent plea and came through because just last week, a link for her 10 Minute Appetizers landed in my inbox.
I scanned through and chose two to make.
One with figs, one with dates.
And another true story? I actually really don’t like figs.
But I am adult enough to know that sometimes something needs to be presented in a different way to get you to like it.
And this is about that.
I have a little bit of a problem with the “ten minute” claim. Unless she means 10 minutes to assemble, and not from start to finish.
But either way, you’re done in thirty minutes, with minimal work.
And I can live with that.
A little sweetness from the date. A barely perceptible taste from the cheese, interestingly enough. And the bacon?
I mean, really.
Everything is better with bacon.
After the first bite, it was a round of OMGs.
And halfway through the night, the entire plate was gone.
Completely and utterly gone.
If you need something a little different to round out your Thanksgiving dinner table, make these. And if you don’t, make them anyway. Or pin them and make them another time.
But make them.
Because if I know nothing else, I know you need these in your life.
Oprah thinks so too.
So there’s that.
PS – And Devils on a Horseback are actually nothing new. They’ve been around forever, in various forms, and were quite big in the 1970s.Pin It
