Recipe by Tristin Rieken, Fresh Flavorful


  • 2 dozen oysters

  • ½ pound bacon

  • 1 cup butter – room temperature

  • ½ cup ketchup – divided

  • ¼ cup sun dried tomatoes – chopped

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons Tabasco – or other vinegar based hot sauce

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder


  • Dice bacon and cook until crispy. Drain and discard rendered fat. Reserve half the cooled bacon for later.
  • Whip room temperature butter until fluffy then add half the ketchup, whipping until completely incorporated. Then stir in sun dried tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, tabasco, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and the remaining cooled chopped bacon.
  • Meanwhile, shuck oysters discard top shell. Loosen oysters from bottom shell and nestle into a rock salt lined baking dish to hold them somewhat level so the juices don’t spill.
  • Top each oyster with a teaspoon of ketchup and a
    tablespoon of Kilpatrick compound butter, followed with a few pieces of chopped bacon. Refrigerate additional compound butter or freeze for later.
  • Broil on high until mixture is bubbly and slightly caramelized, 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve immediately as is, or with lemon wedges, parsley, and additional hot sauce.
