Devils on Horseback:

12 dates

1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

12 almonds, toasted

4 slices bacon

Cucumber Sandwiches:

8 slices white bread

1/2 cup cream cheese

1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced

Kosher salt and cracked black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees . Stuff each date with one almond and a few bits of blue cheese, then wrap each date with 1/3 a slice of bacon. Place on a baking sheet and roast in the oven until bacon is crisp, about 8 minutes. Cut the crusts off each piece of bread, using a rolling pin to flatten each slice. Spread cream cheese evenly on one side of each slice of bread, top 4 pieces of bread with cucumber slices, and season with salt and pepper followed by remaining slice of bread. Cut into triangles and serve along with devils on horseback and a strong cup of black tea.
