8 servings (serving size: 3 oysters)

This hot appetizer is served on the half shell for an elegant presentation. The ground red pepper lends a subtle heat to the breadcrumb topping.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs form to measure 3/4 cup.

Step 3

Heat a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add onions, parsley, and garlic; cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in fresh breadcrumbs, Italian breadcrumbs, and the next 4 ingredients (Italian breadcrumbs through black pepper). Place oysters on a jelly roll pan. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture evenly over oysters.

Step 4

Bake the oysters at 450° for 7 minutes or until the edges of the oysters curl. Serve with lemon wedges.
