Biff’s Parmesan Topped Oyster Bake

by Alli

Biff’s Parmesan Topped Oyster Bake is so delicious. It’s his take on Oysters Rockefeller. 

I recently had the pleasure of spending the week with my extended family at St. George Island. We all take turns cooking (mom cooks the most) and I’m always so excited to see what everyone is making.  

What did I make, you ask? I made my BLT pies for lunch one day and whipped up four batches of my frozen margarita mock-tails to serve alongside Biff’s Parmesan Topped Oyster Bake. We were in charge of appetizers and drinks that night! We killed it!  (That’s a good thing).

I have lots of new recipes and pictures from that fun week at the beach, and I will get to all of them eventually. Today is all about my handsome nephew, Biff, and his Parmesan Topped Oyster Bake!

Ingredients For Parmesan Oyster Bake (the printable recipe is down below!)

How To Clean And Shuck Oysters At Home

Biff is an expert when it comes to shucking oysters.

Clean the oysters under cold running water. Gently scrub the oysters with a brush to remove the sand. Discard any open shells.

Biff always wears a glove to hold the oyster in one hand. Insert an oyster knife into the hinge of the oyster shell, where the top and bottom come together. It’s slightly indented.

Using pressure, move the oyster knife to separate the top and bottom of the shell. Once the oyster is open, loosen the oyster from the shell.
