    3       tb           Butter
    2                    Onions -- minced
    3       tb           Flour -- All Purpose
    1 1/2   c            Chicken Stock
      2/3   c            White Wine
    1       c            Mushrooms -- raw, minced
    1 1/2   c            Shrimp -- cooked, chopped
    3                    Dozen Oysters
                         Rock Salt
    2                    Egg Yolks
    2       tb           Heavy Cream
                         Bread Crumbs -- dried
                         Parmesan Cheese -- grated
 
   Melt butter and saute onions until golden brown. Stir in  flour and cook,
   stirring, until the mixture is lightly browned. Gradually stir in stock,
   wine , mushrooms, and shrimps. Cook slowly over low heat, stirring
   constantly, for 10 minutes. Open oysters and put them in their deep shells
   on individual ovenproof baking dishes. A bed of rock salt will help the
   shells stand firmly upright. Bake the oysters in their own juices in
   preheated moderate oven (350F) for about 6 minutes. Beat egg yolks with
   cream and beat hot sauce into the mixture. Reheat the sauce but do not
   boil. Cover each oyster with some of the sauce and sprinkle lightly with
   equal parts of dry bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Return the oysters to
   the oven for about 10 minutes, until the topping is browned.
