Scalloped Oysters, a dish fit for a king. IF you can find Scalloped Oysters in a restaurant, it will cost you a fortune for a very small portion. In our opinion, homemade tastes much better and costs a fraction of what you can buy. You can serve as an appetizer or side dish. It’s quite rich, so it isn’t often eaten as a main course. I always make this for Bob for Christmas because he just loves it. To make this man truly happy, a dish of Scalloped Oysters works every time!
INGREDIENTS: 4 Servings
1 pint (16 oz) oysters
½ cup Butter, divided
¼ cup Celery, finely chopped
1/8 tsp ground Pepper
¾ – 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
¼ cup Oyster Liquor
½ cup Half and Half or Milk
Drain Oysters over a bowl using a strainer. Reserve liquor.
While Oysters are draining, crush enough Buttery Crackers or Saltines (or a mixture) to equal 2 cups of crumbs. Set aside.
Cook Celery in 1 TBSP of the butter for 2 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat. Add Worcestershire, Pepper, ¼ cup Oyster Liquor, and Milk. Stir to blend. Pour over Crushed Crackers and Stir until combined.
In 8” or 9” casserole, grease with butter. I like to cut the drained Oysters in half to ensure a good flavorful bite every time. Spread one third of Cracker Mixture in the bottom. Add half the Oysters on top. Add another third of Cracker mixture on top of Oysters. Add the last half of Oysters next. Add the last third of Cracker mixture as the final layer. Melt the remaining Butter and pour over the top. Sprinkle with Parsley.
Bake covered anywhere between 325° F – 350° F for 35 – 45 min. If it needs it, remove the cover for the last ten minutes to brown the top.
