Italian Baked Oyster with Breadcrumbs and Garlic


– 2 tablespoons butter
– 1 cup fresh white breadcrumbs, made from 3 slices French or Italian bread
– 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
– 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
– 2 dozen fresh oysters, well drained
– 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
– 2 tablespoons butter, cut in tiny pieces


Preheat oven to 350° F. Generously butter an oven proof baking dish large enough to hold oysters in one layer. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 6 to 8-inch skillet. When foam subsides, add breadcrumbs and garlic; toss in butter until crisp and golden. Remove from heat; stir in parsley. (Can be prepared ahead.) Spread 2/3 cups or breadcrumb mixture in bottom of baking dish and top with oysters. Mix remaining breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese and spread over oysters; top with butter pieces. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crumbs are golden and juices are bubbling. Serve immediately.
