Notes

You can use hot pepper sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce as a variation. Spread on baguettes, or dip with crackers. My choice is thin wheat crackers.

After doing the recipe as directed, I found there was not enough volume to it for my needs. So I added eight ounces of soft cream cheese and served it with a sliced baguette. There was still plenty of the smoked oyster flavor and it made a tasty spread. So if you want to increase the recipe don't add more smoked oysters just cream cheese. Read More

The oomph that people are lacking is a package of ONION SOUP MIX. Add a little olive oil to loosen the mixture, mix in the soup mix with the cream cheese and the mussels/oysters. You also need 2 cans of oysters/mussels per block of cream cheese and soup mix. Refrigerate for a couple of hours and KABOOM! Read More

This is delicious and extremely easy to prepare. No dirtying a mixer just mix it up in the bowl you plan to serve it in. Not the most attractive appearance (brown in color) but I couldn't stop eating it! You must like the flavor of smoke and oysters however. As for the 24 servings it doesn't make much. There is enough to probably top 24 small crackers but if each guest eats 4 crackers that will only serve 6 people. I managed to eat the whole thing all by myself as a snack so you might want to double it for gathering! Ingredients can easily be kept on hand for surprise guests. A keeper!! Read More

This was unbelievable! I love smoked oysters and this was fantastic! Like others said it has a kind of pate like quality and is wonderful served on sliced french baguette. I took the advice of others and did not mash the oysters just roughly chopped them and I also added a little of the oil from the can. You must love smoked oysters for this spread and if you do you will be addicted to this! I would give it more stars if I could. Read More

This recipe makes a nice quantity if you have a taste for pate but don't want to get stuck with a lot leftover. Next time I would not mash the oysters up too much since they continue to fall apart after the remaining ingredients are combined. Instead of the smooth consistency you'd get small chunks of oysters in every bite! Read More

This recipe is surprizingly quite good. As someone else mentioned it has a pate-type taste. The recipe did not indicate though if the oil that the oysters are packed in should be used in the recipe or not. I dribbled in only a few drops of the oil at first and then only added enough until I got a taste I liked. Too much of the oil cancels out the smokey oyster taste. Also did not mash up the oysters too fine. I prefered getting substantial bites of the oysters. Read More

THIS TASTE EXOTIC AND IT IS ADDICTIVE. I USED 6 OUNCES OF CREAM CHEESE AND MASHED THE DRAINED OYSTERS WITH A FORK. I SERVED THIS ON BAGUETTES SLICES. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU WILL REALLY LOVE OR NOT. CRAVING IT AGAIN TODAY. IT IS SO EASY TO MAKE. LET IT SIT OVERNIGHT TO BRING OUT THE BEST FLAVOR!! Read More

Not being a smoked oyster fan, this looked disgusting to me, however, my SO thought this was one of the greatest things he had ever ate. I did make some minor changes. I used 8 oz of cream cheese, 2 tsp worchersire sauce, and about 15 drops of hot sauce, as another reviewer has suggested. I was told this was 5+ stars, and that I could make this at least once a month. He ate the whole thing in two settings, spread on crackers. Thanks for a great recipe MollyB111!! Read More

This was very good and extremely easy to make. I've had it twice now and people really enjoyed it. I would say its a bit thick to "dip" but we just used a knife...yummy. I look forward to trying it with hot sauce. Read More
