They reheat appetizers on nights when they're too tired to cook.
There's a famous dish on the menu at Suzanne Goin's Los Angeles restaurant A.O.C.
; it's a spin on the classic finger food Devils on Horseback
, where chunks of Parmesan are stuffed inside dates, and then each piece is wrapped in bacon and baked. In The A.O.C. Cookbook
, Goin says one of the bartenders at the restaurant makes big batches of these bites at home, keeps them in the fridge and reheats them late at night in a toaster oven. Steal this trick anytime you're making easy-to-make snacks, such as mini pizzas
or cheese and nuts-stuffed figs
; just pop them in the refrigerator (for up to five days) or the freezer (for up to two months) and heat them up anytime you need a quick meal.
