A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.

PostSubject: English bacon-wrapped oysters appetizer ~ Angels on Horseback   December 16th 2010, 12:01 pm




Makes 12 appetizers

* Oysters, shucked -- 12
* Bacon, halved crosswise -- 6 slices

Method

1. Preheat oven to broil, and soak 12 toothpicks in a bowl of hot water for about 15 minutes. Wrap each oyster in a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
2. Set the oysters on a baking sheet and place under the broiler. Cook, turning occasionally, for about 6 or 7 minutes, or until the bacon is browned and the edges are beginning to curl.
3. Serve as is on a platter, or remove the toothpicks and serve warm on buttered toast points or in oyster shells.

Variations

* Devils on Horseback: Use prunes instead of oysters. Stuff the prunes with toasted almonds, blue cheese or some chutney.
* Other popular stuffings include scallops, shrimp, dates and chicken livers.
* You can marinate the oysters in some lemon juice and minced garlic first if you like.
* Substitute prosciutto or pancetta for the bacon.
* Thread the oysters on skewers and grill them instead.
