I dug this one out a few days back....

Angels On Horseback:

12 Oysters
12 thin slices bacon
Salt/pepper/cayenne
flour/milk/ a touch of baking powder

Wrap each oyster with a slice of bacon...skewer 4 oysters on a 6 or 8 inch skewers. Leave at least an inch between them
Make a batter of flour/milk/salt/pepper/etc.
Dip in batter and deep fry...
Serve on warm buttered toast..leave them on the skewer.

I always wanted to try that using turkey bacon (since husband doesn't eat pork), but am not sure it would work because turkey bacon doesn't have the same flexible texture.

Guess it would make an interesting experiment though :)

oh baby, do i love oysters.

gimme a plate of blue points, malpeque, and kumamotos, and i'm in heaven.

often, the oysters are served with a cocktail sauce, and another "sauce". really sort of shaved ice mixed with herbs and vinegar, i think.

does anyone know what this is called? i think it had a french name.

Buckytom - the vinegar sauce you mention is called "Mignonette", & is really popular served with raw oysters. There are many different recipes for it using different types of vinegar & herb combinations.

Breezy...

Never tried turkey bacon....Would placing it in hot water for a few minutes make it more flexible?

Actually, it would probably dissolve - lol!! Turkey bacon - which is quite good by the way - is made from finely ground/compressed turkey. Sort of like bologna (without the mystery parts - lol!!).

So it's flexible, but without the fat of regular bacon, not as flexible when cooked. Like I said, it might work fine with careful tending. I'll definitely have to try it. I mean, what do I have to lose? Even if it doesn't work I'll just end up with a bunch of oysters & bacon which I can still serve over toast. They just won't look as pretty - lol!!!

.....

WoW!! I told you that I had never tried (eaten) turkey bacon...
Maybe there are other products that would work that are not pork based.
Then one might say...why ruin a perfectly good oyster with bacon anyway
