In south-west France, the ultimate Christmas dish is oysters served with a crépinette (sausage patty). If you do not have any crépinettes, you can just use widely available chipolatas.
Brown the crépinette or sausage (in a pan or under the grill), drain off and serve hot.
Serve on a separate plate to the platter of Marennes-Oléron oysters. Chipolatas can be crumbled onto each oyster just before eating.
