  Categories: Cajun, Fish/sea
       Yield: 2 servings
       1    Dozen fresh, shucked oysters             (in a small bowl)
            (in a jar)                          2    Eggs (beaten in a small
     1/4 c  Oyster liquor (from jar)                 Bowl)
       1    Bay leaf                            1 c  Bread crumbs
       1 ts Worcestershire sauce                2 c  Oil (for frying)
       4 sl (1/2 oz each) lean,                12    Toothpicks (for wrapping
            Raw bacon                                Bacon)
     1/2 c  Unbleached white flour         
   In a 1 quart saucepan, on a medium flame, poach oysters in oyster liquor
   with bay leaf and Worcestershire (about 2 minutes, until the edges of the
   oysters curl).  Remove oysters from liquor and set aside. Discard liquor.
   Cut bacon strips in thirds. Wrap each oyster with bacon and fasten with a
   toothpick.  Roll in flour, dip in eggs, and then roll in bread crumbs. Heat
   oil in a 9 inch skillet.  When oil smokes, reduce heat and fry oysters for
   5 minutes. Drain on paper bag and serve immediately. Yields 12 oysters.
