Baked Cheesy Oysters

About a year ago, I posted a recipe for Grilled Oysters with Compound Butter. To make this dish, you needed a grill and a little over an hour of time. I was craving these oysters recently but wanted to make a lazier version where I can just use my conventional oven in a shorter amount of time. Behold: Simple Baked Cheesy Oysters. They look and taste very similar to my fancier grilled oysters, except I was able to accomplish this within 20 minutes!

Next time, I'll need to make both versions and do a taste test with friends!

Baked Cheesy Oysters

Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Yields 4 pieces


  • 4 BBQ oysters

  • 2 garlic cloves (grated)

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

  • 5 tsp preferred cheese (shredded or grated)

  • I used about 1 tsp Parmesan cheese and 4 tsp Italian blend cheese

  • 1/2 tsp fresh parsley (minced)

  • 1/4 tsp bread crumbs

  • Pinch of salt flakes or sea salt

  • 1 lemon wedge


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Set your oysters (cleaned and shucked) on a baking tray.

  • In a small bowl, mix together garlic, black pepper, cheese, and fresh parsley.

  • Evenly distribute melted butter over the oysters, then the mixed together ingredients. Sprinkle bread crumbs last.

  • Bake in the oven for 7 minutes.

  • Change oven setting to broil. Broil for about 5 minutes or until cheese is golden and crisp.

  • Transfer oysters to serving plate. Garnish with pinch of salt and serve with lemon wedge (for optional squeeze of lemon juice).
