Devils on Horseback
This is an interesting starter. See also Angels on Horseback. Devil's on Horseback is a lot cheaper to make. Serves 6.

INGREDIENTS: Prunes - 24 soaked in boiling water for at least 30 minutes, Mango chutney - 4 tbsp, Streaky bacon rashers - 12 rinded, Toast - 12 small slices, Butter - enough to butter the toast, Watercress - 1 bunch

COOKING: 1. Pre-heat oven to 200C / 400F / Gas 6.
2. De-stone the prunes. Stuff each prune with a tsp mango chutney.
3. Stretch the bacon so that it doesn't shrink when it's cooked. Use the back of a knife. Cut each rasher in half.
4. Wrap a piece of bacon round each prune. Place on a baking sheet. Keep them packed up tight so that they don't unravel. Bake for about 8 minutes.
5. Butter the toast. Arrange 2 devils on each piece and garnish the dish with the watercress.
