Mo' Oysters.

 You know how the Hawthornes love their oysters.
We've have embarked upon our third bushel of oysters.

 Mr. Hawthorne shucked a pan full of oysters
and I prepared the toppings.
Bottom left going clockwise:
Crushed Tostitos in the bottom of the bag
Assorted grated cheeses -  Monterey Jack, Parmesan
Panko breadcrumbs
Tomato/onion/pepper mixture

 I did a small chop on the peppers, onions,
and peeled, seeded, and juiced tomatoes,

 I drizzled a little melted butter over each oyster.

 Added a bit of the pepper/tomato/onion mixture.


 Pretty colors.

 I sprinkled Panko bread crumbs over half the oysters.

 And the crushed Tostitos on the other half.
This makes good use of the broken pieces
in the bottom of the bag that you would normally throw out.

 
  Top with the grated cheese.

 And a drop or two of Texas Pete.


 Run under the broiler until bubbly and cheese is melted.

 I lurves me some ersters.

 Each one has a slightly different flavor.


 Oooh!
Is that a little crabbie in this oyster?

Is it really just as easy and sticking them under a broiler until bubbly? I now have a fish market near me that has oysters and will actually shuck them for you, and I have been tempted to pick some up on the way home from work for an easy dinner.

It's that easy Victoria.

Even better is to put them on the grill with a parmesan/paprika/sugar topping. Don't let the sugar throw you.
