Angels On Horseback

Ingredients: (Angels On Horseback)

1 slices bacon slices 1 bunch oysters — fresh, raw 1 teaspoon salt and pepper 1 teaspoon paprika 1 package toothpicks

Directions: (Angels On Horseback)

Wrap thin slices of bacon around freshly shucked oysters, sprinkled with salt, pepper and paprika, and secure them with wooden picks. Put them on a rack in a shallow baking pan and brown them slowly in a moderate oven (350F), turning once, until the bacon is crisp. Serve hot, on parsley sprigs or watercress. Angels on horseback may also be browned under the broiler. They should be turned to crisp the bacon on all sides. Source: Gourmet Cookbook, Volume 1
