Classic Baked Oysters

During the holiday season there is one recipe that really gets me in the festive mood, and that is baked oysters. Oysters are at there most sweet and plump in December and can be topped and baked in a million different ways. Check out this recipe below for a simple and classic version of baked oysters. The cheese, bread crumbs and herbs get golden brown under the broiler as the oyster gets plump and curls at the edges.

Have a great holiday season and Get Crackin'! Chef Egg
