Foods names that make us smile

I often think that some of he names that we call the foods we eat are quite funny..

Today I came across the recipe for Nun's Farts that I have been meaning to make for a while .. The name never fails to make me laugh !

Stargazey Pie .. A pie with fish heads peeping out towards the sky .. Never made this .

Spotted Dick ... A steamed pudding with currants that used to be made in a roll shape , but more often now is made in a pudding basin.

Pigs in Blankets .. Bacon wrapped round sausages

Devils on horseback ... Bacon wrapped round prunes

Toad in the hole ...sausages cooked in ayorkshire pudding type batter .

Hodgepodge Pie .. A meat 'pie' with pearl barely in the mix topped with sliced potato and cheese

There are all sorts of strange names for dishes I thought it would be fun to name some ..
I know that Minnie will come up with a huge list of them
Keep adding to the list please everyone

Rumbledethumps is one that has always made me smile:  is fried cabbage or kale, mixed in with mashed neeps (swede/turnip) and mashed potatoes, put in a dish, covered with cheese and baked.
