I first encountered Angels on horseback at the Santa Fe restaraunt in McAllen, Texas. I can't quite place what was in the cocktail sauce served with these but I came up with something that goes equally well with them. The sauce was something like a spicy Chinese Hot & Sour sauce. In the sauce I quote below, I always add an extra kick with Louisiana Hot Sauce! The water chestnuts give a little extra crunch to the bite.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain oysters. Place an oyster and a slice of water chestnut on each piece of bacon. Sprinkle with parsley and garlic salt. Wrap bacon around oyster and secure with wooden pick.
  2. Place angels on a broiler rack, approximately 4 inches from heat source, and broil 3 to 4 minutes. Turn carefully and broil on other side if desired. Cook only until bacon is done, being careful not to overcook oysters.
  3. Serve with a mixture of mayonnaise, mustard and horseradish.
