A classic!


Couldn't get oysters on the half shell, only large sizes available, so I tried this out. I have to say that it was good and pretty popular. The guests left one or two but I had them when I came out of the kitchen so no leftovers, always a good sign. It is very easy to make. I used 1/2 slides of bacon so there was less bacon per piece. I also found that baking took longer than anticipated. The moisture in the oysters slowed the cook time so I had to keep them in for quite a bit longer but they came out fine. NOTE: that means you could make a little ahead and keep them warm pretty easily. Plan on using the larger round toothpicks. The small ones made it difficult to put it all together. They were not the top choice hit of the party but they were popular. I definitely will make them again.


Wonderful! The oysters I bought were huge and I wrapped them in Applewood Smoked Bacon. Seasoned with Tony Chacheres and used Jezebel Sauce as a dip - delicious!
