Preparing and Shucking Oysters
Wash and scrub the oysters in cold water. Watch the video below to learn how to shuck the oysters.
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix cream and Worcestershire sauce together. Butter eight small ramekins. Layer three shucked oysters in bottom of each. Top oysters with 2 tablespoons cream mixture and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Spread 2 tablespoons cracker crumbs on top. Bake for 15 minutes or until cream starts to bubble. Sprinkle with black pepper to taste before serving. This can be made in a larger baking dish as a casserole.
