Champagne or White Wine: ¼ cup

Heavy Cream: ¼ cup

Leeks: 2- white part only sliced thin

Add cream and reduce on medium low heat until thick. Melt remaining butter in a sauté pan and add leeks. Sauté until all the moisture is cooked off. Add honey and reduce until thick. Divide leeks among the oysters, sprinkle with fresh dill. Spoon a tablespoon of champagne cream over each oyster and bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes until browned and bubbly.
