Devils on horseback is a spicy version of angels on horseback, which are oysters wrapped in bacon and broiled.  When oysters cook their edges curl, supposedly resembling angels’ wings, hence the name. 


    12 oysters
    2 oz. dry white wine
    2 cloves of garlic, chopped
    Tabasco sauce to taste
    Salt and pepper to taste
    6 slices of bacon
    12 buttered toast points (optional)


Preheat the broiler.

Shuck the oysters and reserve the juice and half the shells.

Mix the juice with the wine, garlic, Tabasco, salt and pepper and then marinate the oysters in this for ten minutes.

Cut the bacon strips in half and wrap each oyster with half a bacon slice and secure with a toothpick.

Broil on a baking sheet or in their shells, turning once, until the bacon is crisp and the edges of the oysters have curled.

They can be served on buttered toast points, (triangle shaped pieces of toast), or in their shells.
