"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. Zinc also supports growth in pregnancy, childhood and adolescence. Spinach is packed with antioxidants and nutrients that help protect vision, strengthen bones, and ward off cancer and heart disease. Older women who eat the most spinach and other greens cut their odds of breaking a hip by 30%."

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!

the original recipe doesn't contain garlic You can't taste the oysters

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

Made this as a sidedish last night for my husband... It's impossible to get fresh oysters here this time of year so I used canned oysters and it was great!! I did add horseradish and texas pete to the spinach mixture and it was amazing!!! Thanks!!!!

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.

Great with farfalle pasta. Needs a little more hot sauce than a dash.

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

Folks this is an easy excellent oyster rockefeller recipe. I added crumbled bacon on top of oyster before adding cheese. I would give more than 5 stars if allowed!
