Angels On Horseback
November 5, 2008
ANGELS ON HORSEBACK – pl. n. Brit an appetizer consisting of oysters individually wrapped in bacon and served on toast.
Good ol’ Oxford serves up some interesting British words and phrases now and then. This one gave me a chuckle and I decided it would be today’s word. I would also love to try it. It sounds kind of delicious. Compare it with Devils on Horseback.
