Angels on Horseback
An interesting starter when you've got some oysters to spare. See also Devils on Horseback. Serves 6.

INGREDIENTS: Oysters - 24 remove from shell, Streaky bacon rashers - 12 rinded, Toast - 12 small slices, Butter - enough to butter the toast, Watercress - 1 bunch.

COOKING: 1. Pre-heat oven to 200C / 400F / Gas 6.
2. Stretch bacon so it doesn't shrink when it's cooked. Use the back of a knife. Cut each rasher in half.
3. Wrap a piece of bacon round each oyster. Place on a baking sheet. Keep them packed up tight so that they don't unravel. Bake for about 8 minutes.
4. Butter the toast. Arrange 2 angels on each piece and garnish the dish with the watercress.
