After flicking through a few cookbooks, I’ve noticed there are some really odd names for dishes out there!
This list of strange food names will prepare you the next time you’re out for dinner…
- Bubble and Squeak
The foundation of a classic Bubble and Squeak is potatoes, shredded cabbage and other leftover veg. It is made from the leftovers of a traditional roast dinner.
- Pigs in Blankets
What better way to keep your little piggy sausages warm than wrapping them in bacon?
- Angels On Horseback
“Oh yas darling, I’ll have an oyster wrapped in bacon with my glass of Cava darling!”…so basically a ‘posh’ version of pigs in blankets.
- Devils on Horseback
When the waiter tells you the canapés for the evening, know Devils on Horseback are prunes wrapped in bacon! Let’s be honest though…anything wrapped in bacon is alright with me!
5. Spotted Dick
Is a pudding made with suet and dried fruit. Had a bit of fear looking this one up on Google…
- Singin’ Hinnies
These are sweet griddle cakes. Hinney is how ‘honey’ is pronounced in Northeast England. Once these cakes hit the buttered griddle they start to sizzle and sing!
- Priest Stranglers
No need to alert the media! Known as Strozzapreti in Italian — it’s a type of long twisted pasta.
- Pets De Nonne
“Oh oui, I’d love a nun’s fart with my coffee”… these are light airy fried fritters, hence their cheeky name.
- Toad In The Hole
Not referring to frogs in…em…holes, but rather sausages cooked in Yorkshire Pudding. Top it off with some onion gravy and you can call it whatever you want!
- Spotted Dog
A traditional Irish bread enriched with currants, sugar and egg. It’s also known as Curnie Cake or Railway Cake.
- Stripy Cat
Is made in the same way as a spotted dog by replacing the currants with chocolate…break out the Cadbury’s lads!
