These are some very fine treats. The kind of thing that leaves a lasting impression. The kind of thing that becomes seared into your mind the moment your teeth chomp down on that first bite and the sweet, salt, and tang begin to crawl along your taste buds. That is why they are called Devils on Horseback I suppose… they gallop along your tongue, too good to be good.
I have made them twice. Once at an Oscar party, and once at a movie-viewing party. Non-meat eaters ate them. Yes, I have friends who are vegetarians, except for bacon. This is how you please these people… and everyone else you know… this is how you make vegetarians convert.
