Soften cream cheese, season with ground black pepper and blend with an equal amount of drained, minced smoked oysters. Green onions, finely chopped black olives or mild peppers are options. I always add about a tablespoon or so of the liquid from the can to kick up the smokiness. Flavor with horseradish, lemon, and cayenne; no salt! Mix until smooth. For a dip, thin with mayo and/or sour cream.
