- Devils on horseback
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, with watercress.
Devils on horseback are commonly served as part of a Christmas feast.
