Oyster’s Rockefeller’s Updated

I was in my twenties when I had my first Oysters Rockefeller.  I thought it was ok, but over the years I found I liked it better.  I eat oysters all the time, so I wanted to update this classic.  One thing I wanted to update was the liquor that goes to waste on the bottom of the shell.  I solved that with the crescent roll dough topper.  The other part  I wanted to change was to add some heat so a little hot sauce was brought to the party. Hope you like it.
12 oysters on the half shell — keep the liquid
1  bag spinach, pre-washed
3 strips smoked bacon, diced and fried (save the bacon fat)
