I'm posting this for those who like Oysters. I don't, but thought this sounded good for those that do! Found in a Florida cookbook.

Yummo Jovigirl! I'd had Oysters Kilpatrick topped with cheese in the past so knew the combination worked well together, but the jalapeno peppers made an interesting change. I cooked over the grill on a BBQ with the hood down rather than in an oven.
