Oysters Parmesan #MakeItYours!

Do you like oysters? If you do, how do you like it served? I didn't like oysters when I was younger, but as I grew older, I've learned to love this jewel from the sea. And my favorite way to enjoy them? Oysters Parmesan! I've tried a lot of recipes, but this recipe from Food Network is the best so far. Instead of using regular butter, though, I used Original Country Crock® buttery spread.  I love that this has less fat and calories than butter. #MakeItYours!

  • Cheese Topping:
  • 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 1 bunch Italian parsley, chopped
  • !Garlic Finishing Butter:
  • 1/2 cup Original Country Crock® buttery spread
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce, such as the Louisiana brand
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 24 oysters, shucked on the half shell
  1. For the cheese topping: Mix the Parmesan, mozzarella, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and parsley in a bowl and reserve for later use.
  2. For the finishing butter: Place the buttery spread, lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire, chopped garlic, granulated garlic and 1/2 cup water into a small pot on the stove. Slowly melt and whisk ingredients until incorporated.
  3. For the oysters: Preheat the grill until it is very hot, about 400 degrees F.
  4. Top each oyster with a liberal amount of the cheese mixture. Carefully place the oysters on the grill and close. Cook until the cheese is melted and the oysters are starting to get some color, about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the oysters from the grill with tongs and place them on a cookie sheet or a heat-proof surface.
  6. Arrange 6 oysters per plate or leave on the large platter. Ladle some melted garlic butter over the oysters.
  7. Serve with grilled bread to soak up the juices and butter!
