Fun Fact: Did you know that oysters have been consumed by humans for thousands of years? They were a popular food source for ancient civilizations, including the Romans and the Egyptians. Oysters were considered a delicacy and were often served at feasts and banquets.

Ingredients:

- 1 bottle of fresh oysters
- 4 cold potatoes
- 1 egg
- 2 oz. of flour
- Pepper and salt to taste

Instructions:

1. Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C) to ensure it's ready when you need it.

2. Peel the potatoes and boil them until they are soft and cooked through. Once cooked, drain the potatoes and let them cool.

3. Mash the potatoes in a large bowl until they are smooth and free from lumps.

4. Add the flour and egg to the mashed potatoes. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully combined, and you have formed a smooth dough-like mixture.

5. Lightly flour a clean surface and roll out the potato dough to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.

6. Use a sharp knife or a cookie cutter to cut the rolled-out dough into small circles or squares, depending on the shape you prefer.

7. Drain the oysters from their liquid and pat them dry using a paper towel. Season the oysters with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, along with a pinch of pepper and salt.

8. Take each piece of cut potato dough and place three to four seasoned oysters in the center.

9. Gently fold the dough over the oysters, forming a pocket or a mini pie. Press the edges firmly to seal the oysters inside the potato crust.

10. Brush the outside of each oyster and potato bundle with a little milk to give them a golden-brown color when baked.

11. Place the oyster and potato bundles on a lined baking sheet, ensuring they have enough space between them to expand during cooking.

12. Bake the oyster and potato bundles in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.

13. Once cooked, carefully remove the oyster and potato bundles from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.

14. Serve the oyster and potato bundles piled high on a dish, garnished with a sprinkle of fresh herbs if desired.
