Angels on horseback is a hot appetizer made of oysters wrapped with bacon. In the United Kingdom they can also be a savoury, the final course of a traditional British formal meal. They are somewhat similar to Devils on horseback and the Midwestern version of Pigs in a Blanket, a traditional dish of the American Midwest.
Devils on HorsebackEdit
Devils on horseback are a hot appetizer or savoury.
Recipes vary but in general they are a variation on Angels on horseback, made by replacing oysters with dried fruit. The majority of recipes contain a pitted prune (though dates are sometimes used) stuffed with mango chutney and wrapped in bacon. This is then baked in the oven and quite often served on toast.
Other recipes stuff the prune with cheese, almonds, smoked oysters or other things in place of the mango chutney. Other versions again use liver pieces in place of the prunes.
Devils on horseback are commonly served as part of a Christmas feast.
