Me neither, cara. Just never could understand all the excitement over oysters. More for the rest of you, though....................

Actually, traditional Oysters Rockefeller does not have any cheese. None. Nada. It's oysters on the half shell topped with a butter & herb-seasoned spinach & breadcrumb mixture flavored with Pernod, which is an anise-flavored liqueur, then lightly broiled.

Now I'm sure there are lots of personal variations of it that do add cheese, bacon, sauce, what have you - but the traditional recipe has none of that stuff.
