We’re not sure why the classic dish got the name “angels on horseback,” but we love the sweet flavor pure maple syrup adds to this easy oyster appetizer.
12 shucked and drained oysters
1/4 cup white wine
1 garlic clove, minced
Dash of hot sauce
6 bacon slices, halved crosswise
2 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; let stand 10 to 15 minutes.
Microwave bacon at HIGH 2 minutes to 2 1/2 minutes or until edges begin to get crisp. Wrap each oyster with 1 piece bacon; secure with a wooden pick. Place on a lightly greased oil-lined baking sheet; brush with 1 tablespoon maple syrup.
Broil 3 inches from heat 6 to 9 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Brush with remaining syrup.
