Ingredients
  • 6 cups fresh collard greens, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup homemade or store-bought breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 6 fresh oysters, shucked and left in the half-shell
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside

  • Bring a medium pot of water to boil and submerge the collard greens until they wilt slightly and brighten in color, about 1 minute. Quickly drain in a colander, or remove with tongs, and place directly in the ice bath for a few moments, then remove and strain again. Chop any remaining large pieces a bit more and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, butter, garlic, lemon juice and some salt and pepper and fold together. Spoon the mixture evenly over the 6 oysters and place on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove and top with the crumbled bacon.
