Char Grilled Oysters with Cheese Topping and Garlic Butter

Here’s another barbecue idea for the holiday weekend:
Char Grilled Oysters with Cheese Topping and
Garlic Butter
Cheese Topping:
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
2 lemons, zested and juiced
1 bunch Italian parsley, chopped
Garlic Finishing Butter:
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup hot sauce, such as the Louisiana brand
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped garlic
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
24 oysters, shucked on the half shell
1 loaf Italian bread, sliced and charred on the grill
For the cheese topping: Mix the Parmesan, mozzarella, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and parsley in a bowl and reserve for later use.
For the finishing butter: Place the butter, lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire, chopped garlic, granulated garlic and 1/2 cup water into a small pot on the stove. Slowly melt and whisk ingredients until incorporated.
For the oysters: Preheat the grill until it is very hot, about 400 degrees.
Top each oyster with a liberal amount of the cheese mixture.
Carefully place the oysters on the grill and close. Cook until the cheese is melted and the oysters are starting to get some color, about 10 minutes.
Remove the oysters from the grill with tongs and place them onto a cookie sheet or a heat-proof surface.
Arrange 6 oysters per plate or leave on the large platter. Ladle some melted garlic butter over the oysters.
Serve with grilled bread to soak up the juices and butter!
