"Angels on horseback" not sure exactly what it is.. something with eggs, I think..
"frogs in a hole"? No, no.. my dad makes "Dinguses" no idea how to spell it, but that's kinda how it sounds.. hehe, it's just potato fritters, really, but when we were little, dad didn't know what to call it when we asked what it was.. so he says "they are dinguses". ^_^

Does it count if I made it up myself? I learned to cook by taking care of my niece and nephews, and I learned then how persnickety kids could be...chicken and dumplings? They simply would not eat--until...I renamed it---walla! "Snot Stew." And I even got them to eat liver by calling it "Fried autopsy". They giggled alot but ate every bit and asked for more!
TEXAS (it's all big)
Ok I can explain frogs in a hole... It's actually Toad in a hole... and it is sausages surrounded by Yorkshire pudding mix (batter) and baked... basically I think... Ok so the English don't eat very delicate food... We prefer rugged food... like Toad in a hole... I'm gonna shut up now...
My first set of in-laws tried to trick me into eating fried calf's brain, Karilea. I must have been about 18 and they knew I was pretty fussy (that was before the Marines, where I learned to eat anything if it can be doused in catsup). So, they told me it was some kind of fried plant, can't remember exactly which kind.
Didn't work. I don't recall the taste, but I will NEVER forget that texture…

In my family, we make a salad we call Green Death. Sort of an inside joke, that wasn't the name it came with! (It's cottage cheese, Cool Whip, crushed pineapple, and walnuts mixed with lime Jell-o mix.)

devils on horse back is prunes wrapped in bacon then grilled angels on horseback is the same style but using oysters or mussells instead of prunes my weirdest so far is love apple pie which sounds fine, pastry base apples sugar cinnamon etc untill you have to add 7 dessert spoons of tomato kechup! i havent been brave enough to try it yet!!!!
