Spicy Caramelized Bacon Wrapped Smoked Oysters for Father’s Day #SundaySupper

This recipe evolved into what you see today. Ken said I should do a recipe to celebrate my father, but I had just done 5 days of pasta, and that I would say hands down was my dad’s favorite. I did mention him in one the posts and wished him a Happy Father’s Day. I do miss him terribly, seems so long ago I had the privilege to be with him. He was a great, well read man of vast knowledge and I loved him dearly.

Ken is the great dad in our lives now and this recipe was designed around all of the things he loves. Not that long ago he was making a recipe from the Fine Cooking magazine, a five- spice candied bacon and it was delicious. With that in mind and another of his favorites, smoked oysters I created this recipe just for him and he loved it!!

Happy Father’s Day to you all and may you have a great day in remembering dads and grandads and being with the dads you love. Enjoy!!

Spicy candied bacon wrapped around smoked oysters make a delicious appetizer!!
  • ½ lb. thick cut bacon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup plus more for drizzling (~1/4 cup)
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

  • 85 gm. can smoked oysters, drained
  • Toothpicks
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. On a tray lined with foil place a cookie cooling rack on top. Cut bacon slices in half and lay very close to each other. Mix the brown sugar with the chili flakes and chili powder. Mix in the 1 Tbsp. of maple syrup. Crumble the mixture on top of the bacon and covering as evenly as you can. Drizzle the bacon with more of the maple syrup.
  2. Bake in the oven for 20 min. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 min. until you are able to work with the bacon. Flip a slice over and place a oyster on the bottom of the bacon. Roll up and secure with a toothpick. Place them back onto the rack and bake an additional 10 min. or until starting to crisp. Cool slightly and serve

    Bacon-wrapped smoked oysters is a must-have on our holiday menu for Christmas and New Year’s Eve but I have to say that you have kicked it up more than just a couple notches by making caramelized spicy bacon first and using that! I am drooling over here, Tara!

    I just found out that my father in law has a thing for canned smoked oysters. They kind of freak me out a bit, to be honest. But you’ve made them look so gourmet here! Maybe I’m just being a weenie.

    Your title itself is good enough to eat !! Bacon, caramelized & oysters in the same sentence ? Yumm ! This looks and sounds super yumm ! I must make them !
