devils on horseback
1. A "hot" version of angels on horseback (oysters wrapped in bacon strips), enlivened by the addition of red pepper or tabasco sauce. 2. The British rendition of this appetizer consists of wine-poached prunes stuffed with a whole almond and mango chutney, then wrapped in bacon and broiled. Like the American version, these devils on horseback are also served on toast points.
