Stilton on Horseback….

Stilton on Horseback….

As Stilton matures and becomes smooth and creamy, it develops a sweetness that partners especially well with prunes.

For this simple appetiser – perfect for a summer canape – pitted prunes are filled with Stilton and celery, wrapped in bacon and grilled.


  • 175g/6 oz Stilton mature cheese, rind removed, cut into 16 pieces
  • 2 stalks celery, thickly sliced
  • 16 large pitted prunes, no need to soak
  • 225g/8oz sweet cure bacon strips


  1. Make a cut down the side of each prune, put a piece of Stilton into each prune and wedge in with slices of celery.
  2. Cut the strips of bacon in half, wrap the prunes and set onto a rack ready for grilling.
  3. If you are preparing in advance, refrigerate for up to 24 hours until ready to grill.
  4. Allow 10-12 minutes under a moderate grill, turning once. Serve warm with cool drinks.

Serves 4 – 6
