Use fresh oysters if feasible.

If you don’t have an air fryer, you may bake the oysters in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

Serve the oysters with your favorite dipping sauce, such as cocktail sauce or horseradish sauce.
