In a medium saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Mix in olive oil and heat. Add all other ingredients except oysters and mix well, then remove from heat. Place oysters in individual ramekins or gratin dishes and spoon equal portions of the crumb mixture over each. Baked in preheated 450° F oven until topping is well browned, about 20 minutes.
