Oyster Bruschetta Recipe

Oyster Bruschetta will absolutely be devoured by all oyster lovers!  They are a wonderful Italian appetizer to serve before your next holiday meal or anytime of the year when you can purchase live oysters.  My husband especially loves any food that has fresh oysters in it.  His face lights up when oysters are mentioned.

This Oyster Bruschetta Recipe is so very easy to make and so good!  Do not be afraid to eat and enjoy fresh oysters!  It is perfectly fine to eat oysters any time of year, unless you are on the Gulf Coast of the United States.  Temperature are just too high in the summer there.  If you have not tried fresh oysters yet, this is a good recipe to get you started.

Oysters are also good for you.  Just like most shellfish, they are low in calories and saturated fats.  They are full of protein and contain omega-3 fatty acids.  Did you know that oysters date back to prehistoric times?  They were around with the dinosaurs.  Archaeologists have found large shell piles of oysters and other shellfish that date back to neolithic times.
