Recipe by Joan
"This has been a Thanksgiving and Christmas family favorite for years. It's included in both of our family cookbooks and now the third generation (my 26 year old Navy boy, contributing to his first Thanksgiving away, wanted the 'dummy' version) is fixing it."

2 1/2 cups
saltine cracker crumbs
ground black pepper
unsalted butter, melted
extra small oysters
clam juice, or as needed
hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®)
I added onion and celery to this so kids get veggies in there sometimes I even add a little garlic clove for flavor and since I am pepper lover I use lots of fresh groun pepper. This also needs more cream 1 cup for sure.
Excellent recipe! I made this dish for Thanksgiving. I doubled the amount of crackers and added a half cup more of the whipping cream for a fuller casserole dish.
The recipe states that it serves 8, but I would say it serves 4 if you also have a salad. It was not very creamy. It had good flavor and it was very easy to make.
