Fabulously flavoursome and SO, so easy to prepare so ideal for occasions when you need to take some food to share as they can be assembled on the spot in a couple of minutes - so that the biscuits are still crisp! :) Oh the joys of canned oysters! I took these to a morning tea at work, and made some with cheddar and some with cream cheese to which I'd added some minced garlic. Garlic fiends just cannot resist adding garlic. ;) Both delicious but the oysters stuck so much better on the cream cheese. I added the optional lemon juice, a great addition. A wonderful blend of flavours! These disappeared SO quickly! Solution: next time I make even more! Thanks so much for this recipe, Wildflour! Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT 5.

Delicious appetizers :) So simple. It was better with 2 smoked oysters on top. Cause it was a little bit dry. But maybe the lemon juice would help. I'll try next time :) Thanks Kelly. Made for Bevy tag

This is such a simple and easy appy to prepare. I used a combination of crackers for this. It looked good and gave different tastes and textures. I precut the cheese so It was very simple to assemble. The plate was cleaned. Thanks for the recipe peacefulnightdove
