Angels on horseback


  • 20 dried prunes
  • 20 toothpicks
  • 10 slices of smoked bacon
  • oil

Lay out your ingredients. Remove all of the cartilage from the bacon if there is any and then cut. Prepare all the ingredients. Remove the cartilage from the bacon (if any) and cut in ten medium slices. Halve each slice lengthwise. Stone the prunes. Roll the prunes one by one in a slice of bacon and pick with a toothpick to hold. Keep refrigerated. Before serving, dip the prunes in boiling oil or fry them on a pan for a few minutes. When cooked, drain well on a paper towel. Serve warm.

Asparagus Rollups


  • 1 can of asparagus spears
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 loaf of bread
  • Mayonnaise
  • Margarine

Cut the crust off 12 pieces of bread with a knife. If you choose to, spread a small amount of Margarine on each piece of bread.  Spread a medium amount of Mayonnaise from the bottom left hand side to the top right hand side through the middle of the piece of bread (this is where the asparagus spear will sit). You can use as little or as much as you like, try and find the right amount you like! Now place your asparagus spear across the piece of bread over the line of mayonnaise. Roll up the asparagus from the top left hand corner down to the top right and press together to make it stick.
Serve and enjoy!
