Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (3.75 ounce) can
1 (3 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
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.
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!
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!!
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.
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!
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.
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!!
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.
