Scrub oysters with stiff brush under cold, running water. Shuck, reserving deep half of shells. Drain oysters.
Cut bacon slices into quarters. Cook until limp, but not brown.
In small bowl, combine crumbs, mayonnaise, onion, lemon juice, hot sauce and mustard.
Place a deep layer of rock salt in the bottom of a large pan or baking dish. Arrange reserved shells in rock salt, being sure that they are level. Place one oyster in each shell.
Spread crumb mixture over each. Top with a piece of bacon, then sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 450 degrees until bacon is crisp and oysters are done, about 8 to 10 minutes.
