(about 1/2 cup)
A fellow I met in high school introduced me to this delicious spread. He used to serve it on hot buttered toast. It's also great with crackers.
1 3.7oz tin smoked oysters
1/2 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp red onion, finely diced
1 or 2 pinches cayenne (optional)
1-2 tsp sour cream or plain greek yogurt (if needed)
fine onion slices for garnish
crackers for serving
Drain the oysters and place into a small bowl. Add the cheese, diced onion and cayenne, if using.
Mash everything together with a fork. Add a small amount of sour cream or yogurt if the mixture seems dry.
Serve with crackers.
