    Angels and Devils on Horseback

    "I like to serve these moreish little savouries to accompany the game pie, but they also make wonderful pre-dinner nibbles, and in the case of the devils, are a great snack on buttered toast (at any time of day...)."

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 6 minutes
    • Total time: 26 minutes 30 minutes

    Makes: 18 of each


    • Angels
    • 18 oysters, removed from their shells
    • 9 rashers smoked streaky bacon, halved
    • Devils
    • 9 unsmoked streaky bacon rashers
    • 3 tbsp mango chutney
    • 18 soft d'Agen prunes


    1. Angels
      Sprinkle an oyster with white pepper and wrap in a piece of bacon. Fix securely with a toothpick, or thread several onto skewers. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side, until the bacon has cooked.
    2. Devils
      Make a slit in the side of each of the prunes, put in ½ tsp mango chutney, then wrap in a piece of streaky bacon. Cook in the same way as the angels.
