Angels on Horseback are absolutely delicious, and so easy to make that they lend themselves perfectly to catering for larger numbers of people.
Ingredients
For 40 Angels on Horseback
  • 20 Strips of streaky bacon
  • 40 Fresh mussels (or oysters / scallops)
  • 40 Toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Fry the bacon over medium heat until it is lightly browned but not crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and allow it to coon for a few minutes, then cut it in half across the grain.
  2. Grab a half strip of bacon and one of the seafood pieces and wrap the bacon around the seafood. In this case I am using fresh mussels. Press a toothpick through the overlap of bacon to secure it in place. Continue until all of the skewers are done.
  3. Place the angels in a roasting tin and grill them on the second highest rack in you oven until well browned and crispy. Turn the skewers over and grill the other side until crispy.
  4. By grill, I mean using the top element of your oven on maximum temperature, which is normally 250c.
  5. The grilling is pretty quick, so be sure to keep a watchful eye on your creation so that it does not burn.
  6. Remove the angels from the oven, transfer to platters and serve hot or cold, although I must add that they are better on the hot side.
