Not that I need an excuse to be naughty or indulgent, but with Halloween right around the corner I thought some wicked recipes would be apropos. To "devil" food means to impart it with hot and spicy seasoning, inevitably from some form of hot pepper.
However, as we shall see with devil's food cake, it can also refer to dishes that are inordinately rich and decadent. Either way, sometimes it's good to be bad!
A deviled egg is simply a stuffed egg with the addition of hot spices. There are innumerable recipes for stuffed eggs and they have been eaten since the Roman Empire.
DEVILS ON HORSEBACK
Devils on horseback is a spicy version of angels on horseback, which are oysters wrapped in bacon and broiled. When oysters cook their edges curl, supposedly resembling angels' wings, hence the name.
