  • About

This recipe was invented, so history relates, at Antoine’s, the famous New Orleans restaurant.


  • 48 oysters
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 8


Shuck the oysters, leaving them with their juices in their deep half shell. Detach them from the shell so they will be easy to eat.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the bacon crumbles, spinach, parsley, celery leaves, green onions, bread crumbs, salt, and Tabasco to taste. Cook the mixture over a low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring the while, until you have a lightly cooked stuf
