Devils On Horseback

This entry is filed under Christmas Recipes.


A true classice and one of my all time favorite hot canapes. I love the combinations of sweet, hot and savoury. The mustard filling compliments sweet sticky prunes far better than mango chutney ever did. You’re gonna love them!  

Serving Size: 24 canapés
Preparation & Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Effort Level: Dead easy
Shelf Life: Eat immediately

250g ready to eat – no soak prunes
24 rashers smoked dry cured streaky bacon
50g tube Coleman’s mustard

A grill pan

Top Tip:  Treat yourself to a tube of Coleman’s English mustard as it makes the whole process so easy. All you do is insert the tip of the mustard tube into the prune and squeeze in a little mustard. The whole process is fast, effortless and vaguely satisfying.

Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the grill to high.

Stuff the prunes by inserting the tube end of mustard into the opening where the stone once was and squeezing a small amount into the cavity.

Wrap a single layer of bacon around each prune and place under a hot grill for
1 minute or until the bacon is crisp turn over and crisp the underside.

    Hi Uma,
    I heard you talking about the canapes on the radio Friday. Your ideas sound so simple and effective. Thanks for the inspiration, I’m having a go at some of your canape recipes including devils on horseback in a couple of weeks for our Christmas party – wish me luck 🙂

    Hi Emily,
    You can buy Colemans mustard tubes online from Tesco and I think Sainsburys also stock it.

    Great idea about the mustard tube. Why didn’t i think of that, only problem is I can’t seem to find it in the supermarket.
