DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp and set aside. Reserve 1 tbl. of drippings and melt butter in same pan over medium heat.
  • Add shallots and garlic, saute 2 minutes being careful not to burn the garlic or it will make dish bitter.
  • Add as much spinach as can fit in pan and finely crumbled bacon, along with nutmeg and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add more spinach as it wilts, folding or stirring as you go.
  • When all the spinach has wilted, make a well in bottom of pan and turn heat to medium high. When most of the juice has evaporated from the well and heat has risen, add Ouzo to deglaze pan.
  • Stir mixture until Ouzo has reduced by over half, then add cream. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and add grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring as cheese melts and mix thickens. Season to taste with salt, pepper, hot sauce.
  • Stir in remaining 1 oz. of Ouzo and take off heat to cool. If you are opting to use breadcrumbs, stir in at this time.
  • Arrange oysters on baking sheet, using a bed of rock salt to stabilize if necessary, crumpled foil works as well. Top with spoonfuls of spinach mixture, then sprinkle with a little shredded cheese.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until cheese is melted and top is slightly browned. Serve with lemon wedges if desired. Enjoy!
