Angels on Horseback

Angels on Horseback has to be one of the best ways I know of to get your minimum daily requirement of oysters!

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 12 shucked oysters
  • 6 slices lean bacon

Mix the wine, garlic, salt and pepper together. Add the oysters and marinate 10 to 20 minutes. Preheat the broiler. Cut each bacon slice in half and wrap each oyster with a piece of bacon, securing with a toothpick. Broil on both sides until the bacon is crisp.

You may also cook these “angels” on an outdoor or range top grill.

Makes 1 dozen appetizers
