Top Chef

I have a caterer preparing most of the food for Saturday night, but like always, I am now worried that we will run out of food. I am going to make a few appetizers, just to make sure there is plenty to go around. This is one of my favorite recipes from Katie Lee's "The Comfort Table" it is the perfect bite size snack!

Devils on Horseback
24 pecan halves
24 pitted dates
8 slices of bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
1 1/2 to 2 c. mango chutney

Preheat oven to 400 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Insert a pecan half into each date. Wrap with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Bake until bacon is crisp, about 8-10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and serve with chutney.

Enjoy!! So easy, so delicious, and perfect for when you feel like you just need to add a little extra something.
