Oysters Rockefeller

I could not find oysters at the store so I used Muscles and I replaced the spinach with Kale. It was super yummy! To my surprise my kids gobbled them up and had thirds. They said this was their favorite meal. They are 5 and 3 years old. This is another recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens cook book. What a fun and tasty summer dish!

Oysters Rockefeller
  • 2 cups fresh torn spinach (or kale)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 24 oyster shells
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp snipped parsley
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • several drops hot sauce
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/4 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
  • rock salt
In a saucepan, cook onions and spinach in a small amount of boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Drain. Wash oysters. Using a sharp knife, open shells. Remove oysters. Discard top shells. Combine spinach mixture, 2 Tbsp butter, parsley, garlic, hot pepper sauce, and pepper. Spoon mixture onto shells. Combine bread crumbs and remaining butter . Sprinkle over top of oysters.

Line shallow pan with rock salt. Arrange the oysters on top. Bake at 425 degrees 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!

I loved this recipe, let alone tasting great, in boiling them it was so easy to open the oysters and I was surprised to see they were still raw. I will definitely make these again!
