Pigs in Blankets - Oyster Appetizers

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

A lovely, savory morsel from the Southern chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.


  1. Season oysters.
  2. Slice pimiento into 12 strips, placing one on each oyster.
  3. Wrap each oyster in bacon and fasten with skewer or wooden toothpick.
  4. Broil about 8 minutes or until bacon is golden brown and crisp.

Made these tonight! I would say to dry the oysters by patting with paper towels, then season. I also dusted the bacon with lemon pepper. I also use thick sliced bacon and it took a little longer to cook. I removed the bacon on a few of them for DH since he can't have the bacon but he had the flavor! Thanks for posting!
