Instructions
  1. My mom is one of the best cooks I know and she always reminds me that she is "better than I am" at cooking. I, of course, tell her she's crazy and she has nothing on me! It's a delicious rivalry that is continuous. I will have to say, however, her Oysters Rockefeller are by far the best I've ever had in my life. Growing up in Florida fresh seafood is always easy to get and she would make these as a special treat on a lazy Sunday and they were always out of control good. Well, I finally got her to tell me the recipe and I had to share it with you all. The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. In a pan over high heat melt your butter and add the sliced bacon to the pan. To the bacon while it is cooking add the chopped onion and garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes until it is starting to get light brown. Add the Anisette liquor, red pepper flakes, and fresh spinach to the pan. Mix it all together to let the heat wilt the spinach. Let it cook for about 5 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium and to the mixture add a few dashes of Tobasco, salt, pepper, just a little more Annisette, fresh grated Parmesan, and the lemon juice. Mix it all together and put on the top of the shucked oysters. To the top of the spinach mixture add a slice of muenster cheese to cover. Sprinkle the top with fresh grated Parmesan and put in the oven. Let them cook at 325 degrees F for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn on the broiler and let broil for about 1 minute, or until the cheese is starting to brown on the top. Make sure you watch them, they burn very easily! That's it! So easy and beyond amazing. If you ever come across fresh oysters PLEASE (!) make this recipe. Enjoy!
