Oysters Kilpatrick

Willie's favourite way to enjoy his Bluff oysters is Kilpatrick style. The key to their success is to make sure they are only just warmed through - and no more - and to serve them the minute they are removed from the oven.


  • 2-3 rashers bacon, finely diced
  • 16-20 Bluff oysters in the shell
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • 2-2½ cups tasty Cheddar-style cheese, grated


  1. Set the rack at the top of the oven. Preheat the oven grill to high.
  2. Pan-fry the bacon until cooked, but not too crispy. Drain on a paper towel.
  3. Arrange the oysters in a baking dish. Season each liberally with Worcestershire sauce. Scatter the bacon evenly over the oysters and then top each with a generous amount (2-3 tablespoons) of grated cheese.
  4. Grill until the cheese has melted and serve immediately.
