Ingredients:

3 doz. Oysters.

A tea-cup of Grated Bread-crumbs.

2 oz. of Fresh Butter. Pepper.

A little Lemon Juice,

Butter some tin scallop-shells, or, if you have not any, a small pie-dish. Strew a layer of crumbs, then some thin slices of butter, then oysters enough to fill up tin or dish. Cover with bread-crumbs and slices of butter, add pepper, salt, and lemon, and some of the liquor kept from the oysters. Put butter over the whole surface, and bake in a quick oven. Brown in the oven. Serve in dish or shells in which it has been cooked. Time, quarter of an hour.
