Mushroom Oysters Rockefeller

Prep:

From an old BBS food forum. I used the smallest jarred oysters I could find in the fresh seafood section, but the recipe called for fresh, shucked oysters. With the bagged spinach e-coli scare, use a fresh bunch purchased from a local grower if possible, not bagged.
