Directions

  1. Clean oysters, and place in a large stockpot. Pour in beer and enough water to cover oysters; add 2 cloves garlic, seasoned salt, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, drain, and cool.
  2. Once oysters are cooled, break off and discard the top shell. Arrange the oysters on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in butter until soft. Reduce heat to low, and stir in spinach, Monterey Jack, fontina, and mozzarella. Cook until cheese melts, stirring frequently. Stir in the milk, and season with salt and pepper. Spoon sauce over each oyster, just filling the shell. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  4. Bake until golden and bubbly, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

The BEST!!! We have been making Oysters Rockefeller as a "traditional appetizer" for Christmas Eve for years. We have tried recipe after recipe. A friend had been suggesting allrecipes.com for years for receipes in general and I took a chance on the oysters this year...WOW! We are blown away! This is now "THE RECIPE" we will use...the search is over. Do as others say and leave out the mozzarella cheese...everything else is perfect! Can't wait to use allrecipes.com for other searches! I'm hooked! :)

I'm sorry but this was a big glob of cheese. Oysters Rockerfeller should be more spinach. I should have know better when I saw 8oz of 3 different cheeses and only on 10oz pkg spinach.

To die for! Did add a couple slices of crumbled bacon to the mix and I eliminated the mozzarella cheese because it has limited taste and makes the mix too stringy. The only other minor change was to drizzle just a little butter with a hint of lemon before serving. Thanks for the inspiration!

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! Sandy

I'm a landlocked sailor living in Kentucky and one of my favorite treats is oysters Rockefeller. I go to the ocean often and these are as god as any that I have had anywhere. I did cheat a little and add some crumbled bacon to your recipe. Thanks for the treat.

These were delicious & made a wonderful presentation! I couldn't find Fontina cheese so used Gouda instead. They were a bit on the salty side so would recommend omitting the salt altogether.

I have never prepared oysters before, and was a little concerned about all the work needed to prepare them. It was so worth it! I made these for my boyfriend last night, and he loved the recipe. I did however make a couple of small changes. I boiled the oysters for 7 minutes, omitted the milk and mozza cheese. I topped them with real bacon bits. My boyfriend was almost sad when he finished the last one! If you're looking to impress this recipe is a keeper! This is a very elegant looking appetizer the hardest part is cleaning and opening the shells but you will see it's worth the effort!

I made this for New Year's eve for my husband and I. These were delicious and very easy to make. I couldn't find fontina cheese but used guyere instead and omitted all added salt. They were plenty salty! Thanks for wonderful appetizer Cassandra.
