DIRECTIONS

  • To make the biscuits: preheat oven to 450-degrees F.
  • Grease cookie sheets.
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour - baking soda. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in buttermilk until dough comes together.
  • Turn dough out onto floured board.
  • Knead dough gently 10 times, adding more flour if needed.
  • Roll dough out to a thickness of 3/16 - inch and then cut into 16 rounds using a 2-inch cookie cutter (I use a coffee cup) and then transfer to prepared cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or unti lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
  • For the relish: in a heavy skillet over medium heat fry bacon until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 3 tablespoons drippings.
  • Stir water into skillet and then add next 3 ingredients (tomatoes - garlic) and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until peppers are soft and mixture thickens. Stir in parsley and salt and pepper.
  • Crumble bacon into relish and set aside.
  • Preheat broiler: arrange oysters on broiler pan, brushing with oil and lemon juice.
  • Broil for 4-5 minutes, turning once or until edges begin to curl. DO NOT OVERCOOK.
  • To assemble sandwiches: split biscuits. Spead both halfs with relish and top 1 half with oystes and then cover with second half. Repeat for remaining sandwiches.
