Oysters, 2 ways

Method

  • To make the Mornay sauce, gently cook the melted butter and flour in a pot, regularly stirring.
  • Add the hot milk all at once and vigorously whisk.
  • Then add a good handful of grated cheese with the cream  and whisk until melted and well combined. Season and set aside to cool a little.
  • Heat a little oil in a pan and gently sauté the red onion and bacon until soft.
  • Then add the Worcestershire with 3 drops Tabasco. Stir well and remove from the heat.
  • For Oysters Kilpatrick, place oysters on a bed of rock salt in 1-2 large oven trays and spoon a generous amount of the bacon mixture on top of each one.
  • For Oysters Mornay, spoon the Mornay sauce on top of oysters and top with more cheese.
  • Then cook the oysters under a preheated overhead grill until golden and bubbling.
  • nb.  The bigger the oysters the better for this!
