Angels on Horseback

This recipe is intended as a template – you can drizzle the “angels” with lime or a dash of hot sauce, you could bake them instead of grilling, or you could coat them in batter and shallow fry them in hot oil. Whatever method or preparation you choose, angels on horseback make a fantastically tasty canape or starter.
