  • Yield: 18 servings (serving size: 2 tablespoons dip and 2 bread slices)


  • 36 (1/4-inch-thick) slices diagonally cut French bread baguette (about 9 ounces)
  • 1/2 (1-ounce) slice white bread
  • 1 (12-ounce) container standard oysters, undrained
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped green onions
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup evaporated fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat oven to 375°.

Arrange the baguette slices on 2 baking sheets; bake baguette slices at 375° for 8 minutes or until crisp.

Preheat broiler.

Place 1/2 (1-ounce) bread slice in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 1/4 cup.

Drain the oysters in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2 tablespoons oyster liquid. Place the oysters on a broiler pan, and broil 7 minutes or until the edges of oysters curl. Cool and chop.

Place onions, celery, and parsley in a blender or food processor, and process until finely chopped.

Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion mixture; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in oysters, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoon oyster liquid, cheeses, and the remaining ingredients; cook 2 minutes or until well blended, stirring constantly.
