For this reason, the “real recipe” is not known. There are so many different versions of this dish, so we decided to try 2 different versions. I love researching antique recipes! It is fascinating to discover the history of our favorite foods.
Oysters are a new-found love for my family. None of us have ever had them. Why? I can not imagine. We love seafood of all shape and color, like these Strawberry Infused Scallops. They really are simply divine! Tender and juicy! When researching an Oysters Rockefeller Recipe we came across a video with Scott Conant from The Grand Central Oyster bar in New York City who are famous for their Oysters Rockefeller Recipe. This version had a white wine cream mixed with the spinach and Hollandaise sauce on the top! Always looking for excuse to eat Hollandaise sauce, we opted for this version!
This version, we just used bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Both were very good because the oysters are so good. Of course, we preferred the ones with the Hollandaise! Big surprise, right?Print
