Put a teaspoon of laverbread in the bottom half shell of each oyster then place an oyster on top. Carefully cover each oyster with the cheese mixture and sit on a baking tray, keeping the shells tightly placed together so that they do not slide around. If liked, at this point you can refrigerate them until needed, for up to 6 hours
