Raw oysters can be a little intimidating to the uninitiated, but these baked oysters should please both the oyster amateur as well as the aficionados. Since these oysters are served cooked, you can skip the "shucking" and give the oysters a quick steam. Whether you plan on serving 6 or 60, you can have them open in minutes.
These baked oysters with Irish cheddar and bacon are the perfect snack for St. Patricks Day, best served with and ice cold Irish stout.
