This gratin is delicious because the sweet oysters release their juices to blend with the cheesy pool of joy under a golden and bubbly crust. Serve with pieces of crusty sourdough.

Step 1
Shuck the Oysters (10) , rinse them clean to get rid of any impurities, gently dab dry, then set aside. In a pot over medium heat, melt the Unsalted Butter (2 Tbsp) . Add the All-Purpose Flour (2 Tbsp) and cook for a minute.
Step 2
Whisk in the Milk (1 cup) and Dry White Wine (1/4 cup) . Continue whisking until the mixture comes to a simmer and has fully thickened, then keep cooking for 56 minutes until reduced slightly and alcohol has evaporated.
Step 3
Turn off the heat. Add Shredded White Cheddar (3/4 cup) , Gruyère Cheese (3/4 cup) , Garlic (1 clove) , Sea Salt (1/4 tsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) , Ground Nutmeg (1/8 tsp) , and Ground White Pepper (1/8 tsp) .
Step 4
Stir with a fork until the cheese has fully melted. Taste and reseason with sea salt if needed.
Step 5
Preheat the top broiler on high. In a shallow oven-proof skillet, spread half of the cheese sauce on the bottom, then arrange the oysters evenly and cover with the rest of the cheese sauce.
Step 6
Top with Parmigiano-Reggiano (to taste) to entirely cover the surface, then scatter a few extra nubs of unsalted butter here and there. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 13 to 15 minutes, until it's bubbly and golden browned.
Step 7
Grate another generous pinch of fresh nutmeg over the top. Don't be shy with the nutmeg! Serve immediately with Sourdough Bread (to taste) .
Step 8
Enjoy!
