This easy recipe offers a wealth of nutritional goodies, so give it a try. Oysters are a super source of zinc, an essential mineral for immunity, wound healing, and your sense of taste and smell.

My husband and I love Oysters Rockerfeller so I was so excited to find this recipe. Very simple to prepare I did make a couple of modifications after reading the other reviews. I added hot sauce to the spinach mixture and also 2 heaping teaspoons of horseradish. I also combined parmesan cheese and grated romano cheese and sprinkled on top along with more hot sauce. We love Tabasco sauce on our oysters. The horsradish was a must! Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was a very easy recipe. However I feel if I had added onion with the garlic it would have given it more of a punch. I felt something was missing I think it was the onions. Also I use fresh spinach and sautee the spinach a little longer it was very good. Will do it again only with onions the next time...Dohna Read More

I thought this was very good and gave it five stars because its great taste was produced with such ease of preparation. I use a potato ricer for squeezing my spinach. This would make six servings (as the recipe states) for use as an appetizer but if using it for a main dish plan on it serving two or maybe three people. Read More

This is a great base recipe. But with some modifications it's now a family favorite. I added a whole minced shallot hot sauce and a tablespoon of horseradish sauce to the spinach (a bag of fresh spinach wilted it down). Additionally I mixed asiago cheese 4 slices of bacon diced and old bay into the parmesan cheese. Once I did this the dish was outstanding Read More

The modifications I made was to eliminate the hot sauce and add a dash of ouzo. If you don't have ouzo anise would work. Read More
