Taco Oysters

Many years ago, there was an immigration of Yugoslavians to Louisiana, where they settled along the mouth of the Mississippi River. Many became oyster fishermen. Since they are known by their nickname, Tacos, there are a number of oyster dishes also known by that name.

Oysters 
Bacon
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
Dash of Tabasco ? sauce
Salt and pepper (sparingly)
2 teaspoons tomato sauce
1/8 teaspoon granulated sugar
American cheese, finely shredded

Arrange oysters on the half-shell in a pie pan of rock salt. Prepare enough partially-cooked bacon so that there will be enough to cover each oyster with a bacon strip.

On each oyster, place the above ingredients. Cover each oyster with finely-shredded American cheese. Bake at 450 degrees F until oysters are done and curl on the edges and the cheese is bubbly (10 minutes or less).

Garnish with parsley sprigs.
