Bacon Wrapped Oysters

I am a huge lover of seafood… and oysters in particular.

It’s funny, before I met my husband I never used to eat oysters. I had tried them a handful of times and a bunch of different ways, blackened, steamed, raw, you name it, and I still couldn’t stomach them.

It wasn’t until after the hubby and I went to a oyster bar for a date (I didn’t tell him that I didn’t like oysters until after they arrived at the table) that I actually started eating, enjoying, and craving them.

I’m not 100% sure what was different about the oysters that he and I shared together… call it fate or something, haha… but from then on I loved them. All different ways!

This variation I’m sharing with you today is so amazing and… bacon. Everything is better with bacon wrapped around it.

After some extensive (not really, I actually just stumbled on this) research on the internet, I came to find that bacon wrapped oysters are actually called ‘Angels on Horseback.’

Not 100% sure why because I didn’t do that much research stumbling, but that’s what they are called. Who knew?

These oysters come out juicy and the bacon nice and crispy. I could seriously eat the whole batch but I have to refrain because sharing is caring.

  1. I am an oyster FREAK! Though I usually eat them raw, I have some cooked ones in my freezer… this might be the perfect plan for those babies!

  2. What timing, I went on a seafood hunt yesterday and drove some 130km to all of my favourite seafood haunts and came up empty handed and now I see this, sounds absolutely divine… I think a trip to the seaside maybe in order 😉

  3. Do you begin with “fresh” or smoked oysters? Perhaps a good idea for anyone lucky enough to have fresh oysers to put in any adaptation to the recipe.
