O ysters Rockefeller consists of oysters on the half-shell that have been topped with various other ingredients often spinach or parsley, cheese, a rich butter sauce and bread crumbs and are then baked or broiled. Created first at the New Orleans restaurant Antoine's, the dish was named Oysters Rockefeller after John D. Rockefeller, the richest American at the time, for the richness of the sauce. Though the original recipe is a secret, the sauce can also be a puree of a number of green vegetables other than spinach.
