|A fall back to the good ole days, Angels and Devils on Horseback are simply bacon wrapped, bite sized yum yums, one based on dates, the other, oysters.|
Angels on HorsebackAngels on Horseback are similar to their counterpart, Devils on Horseback, except instead of dates wrapped in bacon, we're using oysters, and like their counterparts, the bacon you'll need and how you cut it, is going to be dependent on the size of the oysters, so you may need to cut it into two or three pieces. Here's how to make them.
Recipe: Angels on Horseback©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 15 min |Cook time: 20 min | Yield: Depends on number/size
- 1 pint of oysters
- 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
- Couple dashes of hot sauce
- Bacon, cut into halves or thirds, depending on the size of the oysters
- Cocktail sauce or Remoulaude sauce, for dipping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Mix the garlic powder and hot sauce in with the oysters and their juice; let sit for about 20 minutes. When ready to bake, cut the bacon in half and layer between paper towels. Cook in the microwave on high for about one minute, just to partially cook. Wrap a portion of bacon around each oyster, secure with a toothpick and bake at 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes. Check, turn over, and continue baking in 5 minute increments, until done. Can also broil instead.
