Blue cheese oysters
8 oysters, shucked, on the half shell
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon fresh tarragon leaves, minced
Makes 4 appetizer servings.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange oysters in their shells on a baking sheet. Set aside. Mix the garlic, blue cheese, bread crumbs, butter and tarragon in a small bowl; top oysters with the mixture. Bake until topping is bubbly and beginning to brown, about 12 minutes.
