Freemans New York City
The quirky menu at this hard-to-find yet wildly popular restaurant and bar includes this very classic British appetizer; it's a variation on Angels on Horseback, which is made with oysters instead of prunes and so-named because the cooked oyster edges resemble wings.

20 pitted prunes
1 1/2 ounces blue cheese, cut into 20 small pieces (about 1/3 cup)
10 slices of bacon (about 11 ounces), halved crosswise
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 500°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Put the prunes in a medium bowl, cover with warm water and let plump for 15 minutes; drain and pat dry. Press a piece of blue cheese into the center of each prune. Wrap each prune with a bacon slice, making sure to cover the hole in the prune; secure each one with a toothpick. Arrange the prunes on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, turning once, until the bacon is crisp. Drain on paper towels. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
