Bayou Crostini

Recipe by  

"Broiled oysters are elevated from southern backyard fare to upscale appetizers that still call for licking your fingers afterwards.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice the baguette into 24 rounds. Brush bread rounds lightly with olive oil. Place bread rounds on a baking sheet.
  2. Toast the bread rounds in the preheated oven just until crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Meanwhile, slice Brie cheese into 24 equal pieces. Remove toasted bread from oven; top each round with a slice of Brie cheese. Return the crostini to the oven to melt the cheese, about 5 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. In an ovenproof casserole, stir together the oysters, butter, any remaining olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  4. Broil in the preheated oven until the oysters begin to curl at the edges, about 5 minutes. Remove the oysters; place one oyster on top of each crostini. Top the crostini with red pepper strips; serve warm.

These were super good. I normally am not a fan of brie cheese or oysters but I could not resist eating these. The brie made the oysters taste butter and delicious. Very much complementing each other. Would definitely make again.

Simple, yet fantastic! The red pepper is a nice touch, especially color-wise. I did half with lightly sauteed portobella mushroom slices and found out that you can garnish with a wide variety of whatever you like (thin sliced cheery tomato, fine chives, roasted garlic). Makes for a great appetizer with friends so you can stretch out on your own toppings! Thanks again for a recipe that is easy, quick, inexpensive, yet delicious and dynamic!
