Directions

  1. Preheat oven to broil. Place oysters, in their shells, on a baking tray. Spoon 1/2 tsp (2 mL) garlic butter on each oyster. Top each with a slice of brie.

  2. Broil until cheese is bubbling, 3 to 4 min.

  3. Sprinkle with thyme and pepper to taste.

Tip

Keep oysters from tipping by placing a layer of coarse salt on your baking tray. The salt also makes for an elegant presentation.
