kudos for boyofbadgers last night for correctly calling what are "angels on horseback" despite mass derision fro his ignorant fellow shovellers

DDD: what are angels on horseback?
BoB: isn't it oysters with bacon?
DDD: *looks sceptical*
BoB: or an oyster on a sausage, something like that?
everyone: *tremendous glee at the idea it might be an "oyster on a sausage"
DDD: so what are devils on horseback?
barnetape: prunes with bacon!

angels on horseback:
YOU WILL NEED: 24 oysters, 12 bacon streaky rashers, 12 small slices toast, butter, watercress

devils on horseback:
YOU WILL NEED: 24 prunes, 12 rashers streaky bacon, 12 small slices toast, 2oz mango chutney, butter, watercress
