|This is a Great time of year for Irish Oysters!|
Some folks aren't too sure about swallowing down these tasty fruits of the sea in their natural state, so here is a simple but delicious recipe for a baked oyster dish. You can cook these as a lunch or as a tasty surprise if you have company around.
Slide your knife under the oyster and cut the bottom muscle to loosen it completely from the shell. Arrange them on your serving plate.

1.Grill your bacon under a fast heat and set aside.
2. Wash the oysters with a scrubbing brush.
3. Pop them on a tray and put them straight into the oven, still closed, at 180º for 5 minutes. They heat will steam the oysters in their own juice.
4. Take out the oysters and peel the top shell back - it will open easily because the oysters are cooked.
5. Slice the cooked bacon into thin slivers and put a little over each oyster. Crumble the Blue Cheese over each one and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over them all. Give each on a twist of freshly ground pepper.
