  • 1 pt. (or less) raw oysters
  • 1 pkg. Knorr's Hollandaise sauce (follow directions)
  • 2 (10 oz.) pkgs. frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/2 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 c. whipping cream or half & half
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Lemon pepper
  • Salt & pepper or your favorite seafood seasoning
  • Cracker or bread crumbs
  • Paprika

Cook spinach in a little water, just a short time, so it stays green. Drain, add the cream. Thicken with flour. Place small layer in buttered 1 1/2 quart casserole. Rinse (slightly) oysters, drain and put in casserole. Sprinkle juice of 1/2 lemon over them. Add seasonings.

Cover the oysters with remaining spinach. Add hollandaise sauce, the two cheeses, cracker crumbs and paprika. Bake at 375 degree for 15 minutes. Broil a few minutes. Serve and enjoy. Serves 6.
