Known at least since 'Sunday Night Suppers' by Christine Terhune Herrick (Boston, USA, 1907).

The 1911 comic novel of hades 'A safety match' by Ian Hay has; "'There's a nice tender sinner came in this morning, miss. You might have a few of his ribs; or would you prefer him served up grilled, with brimstone sauce? And I suppose you would like devils-on-horseback for a savoury.'"
