½ lb. bacon
2 cans smoked oysters
Demitri’s® All Natural Bloody Mary Seasoning
Cut bacon strips in half and brush both sides with Demitri’s. Heat bacon in a skillet over medium heat, cooking only halfway to keep it soft enough to wrap around the oysters. Wrap each oyster in a strip of bacon and skewer with a toothpick. Place each wrapped oyster back into skillet and cook until the bacon is crispy. Drain on a paper towel and serve hot.
Which great drinks are you going to serve with this?
