Pigs in Blankets

Pigs in Blankets

These were great fun to make, and Margaret often begged to get them ready for company.

15 large oysters.
15 very thin slices of bacon.

Sprinkle each oyster with a very little salt and pepper.

Trim the rind from the bacon and wrap each oyster in one slice, pinning this "blanket'' tightly on the back with a tiny Japanese wooden toothpick.

Have ready a hot frying-pan, and lay in five oysters, and cook till the bacon is brown and the edges of the oysters curl, turning each over once.

Put these on a hot plate in the oven with the door open, and cook five more, and so on.

Put them on a long, narrow platter, with slices of lemon and sprigs of parsley around. Or you can put each one on a strip of toast which you have dipped in the gravy in the pan; this is the better way.

This dish must be eaten very hot, or it will not be good.
