  • Grill or Big Green Egg



  • 1 Bushel Fresh Oysters

Mother Shucker Sauce

  • 6 Sticks Butter (Melted)
  • 1 Bundle Green Onions-(Onion only-no greens)
  • 2 Lemons (Zested and Squeezed)
  • ½ Cup Minced Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Creole Seasoning
  • 2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • ½ Cup Fresh Chopped Thyme (Loosley packed)
  • ½ Cup Fresh Chopped Oregano (Loosely packed)

Oyster Topping

  • 3 Bundles Green Onions (Onion and green stems)
  • 1 Pound Bacon (Fried and diced)
  • 1 Pound Ground Mild Italian Sausage (Fried)
  • 4 Cups Shaved or Grated Romano or Parmesan Cheese


Make Mother Shucker Sauce

  • Combine Melted Butter, Onion, Lemon, Garlic, Creole Seasoning, Red Pepper Flakes, Thyme, and Oregano
  • Use a hand mixer to emulsify
  • Let cool
  • Emulsify again, so the sauce is thick and creamy
  • Set aside


  • Allow closed Oysters to steam on the grill for at least 5 minutes to make shucking easier
  • Use a Heavy Mitt and an Oyster Shucking Knife to gently open Oysters
  • Check and discard anything besides the Oyster (Sometimes there can be a small crab or pieces of shell)
  • Discard the top of the Oyster
  • Repeat until you have a dozen open Oysters

Assemble and Grill your Oysters

  • Put 12 open Oysters on the Grill
  • Generously fill Oyster with Mother Shucker Sauce
  • Sprinkle each Oyster with Green Onions, Bacon Bits, and Sausage pieces
  • Cover each Oyster with shaved or grated cheese
  • Close the lid of the grill, and allow the Oysters to cook for approximately 4-5 minutes, or until the edges get slightly brown
  • Remove from the grill and serve
  • Repeat with remaining Oysters

Buy the freshest oysters you can find

A Bushel of Oysters is great for a party, but you can also buy a 1/2 bushel and cut this recipe in half

Preheat the Oysters on the grill for at least 5 minutes- makes them much easier to open

Use a thick protective heat-resistant oven or grill mitt, and a quality Oyster shucking knife.  Good tools make this process safer and easier.

Allow the Mother Shucking sauce to cool and get thick -mix a second time to be sure everything is emulsified or fully blended

Make your Oysters spicier with more Pepper Flakes, or by using Chorizo sausage
