  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Set a wire rack into a small baking dish.
  2. Wrap each oyster with a slice of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, and parsley; set onto wire rack.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the bacon is crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately. They aren't as good once they get cold.

Yum! So easy to make too. I used a jar of freshly shucked oysters and they were the perfect size to wrap. I also skipped the spices and just used creole seasoning.
