This is a favourite of mine to “jazz up” simple oysters. Impress your friends and family with this simple recipe. And if you really feel like being classy, enjoy them with a glass of bubbles – YUM!

  6. 1 Tbsp white wine
  7. 1 Tbsp parmesan
  8. 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs

  1. With a knife loosen the muscle of the oyster in the shell so that they are easy to eat once cooked.

  4. Remove the bacon from the pan, leaving the bacon fat behind.
  5. Add the butter and fry the shallots and garlic in the bacon fat butter.

  7. Remove from the pan and combine with the bacon.
  8. Add parmesan, panko crumbs and black pepper to the bacon and shallot mixture to create the crumb topping.
