Oyster Tit-Bits

Cooking time—12–15 min. (approx.)

Ingredients

  • 9 small oysters
  • 1 oz. butter
  • 9 round croûtes of bread
  • anchovy paste
  • 3 small rashers of bacon
  • lemon juice
  • cayenne pepper
  • watercress

Method

Beard the oysters and place between 2 plates with their own liquid and the butter. Warm thoroughly in the oven, or over a saucepan of boiling water. Spread the croûtes of bread—which can be toasted or fried if wished—with anchovy paste. Cut each rasher of bacon into 3 pieces, grill or fry, put on the croûtes of bread and top with a hot oyster. Sprinkle with lemon juice and cayenne pepper, and garnish with watercress.

Can be served cold, but nicer hot.
