Oysters in a can, alas

Know any good ways to prepare canned oysters?

They're good for health and convenient to keep on hand, so I want to eat them sometimes. Only question is how to make them delicious, if possible.

Are they smoked? I really like smoked oysters mixed with cream cheese on sandwiches, crackers or toasts, and tossed with spinach, carmelized onions, parmesan cheese and olive oil over pasta.

Ambrosia Voyeur -- do you sauté that delicious-sounding pasta topping?

Some people (not me) really, really like smoked oysters mixed in with scrambled eggs.

If they're smoked, mmmm..straight out of the can.

Beef and oyster pie - a traditional English dish from the times when oysters where a 'poor mans' food and used as a filler.

Mix with cream cheese, minced onion, and Worcestershire sauce. Spread on crackers.

My dad used to make oyster stew with them. Some low-fat milk, a little butter, and the oysters all heating quite happily on the stove until the milk steamed.

I never actually ate the oysters, though.

I like 'em in an omelet with whichever soft cheese I've got sitting around and some capers.
