Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heavily butter a 2-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter and set aside.

Melt the remaining 5 tablespoons of butter in a large, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions, bell pepper, celery, salt, & cayenne to the pan and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, green onions, and parsley, and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir the chicken stock into the vegetables and remove from the heat.

Add the bread cubes and stir well to incorporate. Break the egg into the mixture and stir well, then add the oysters and their liquor, and the cheese. Pour the oyster dressing into the prepared pan and bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and bubbling on top, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
