"Some recipes you only make once a year because they're just so-so. Other recipes, like this dish of scalloped oysters, you only make once a year because they're too good." — Chef John

crushed saltine crackers
unsalted butter, melted
shucked small oysters with liquor
salt and ground black pepper to taste
chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
This recipe is so similar to mine - I don't think I've ever measured...I do add worcestershire sauce to each layer. This was a family tradition at my house for Thanksgiving. I like it with a Steak as well (and have been known to heat them up and eat for breakfast - it grosses my family out but I love them)! Glad to see someone else is eating them!!!
Pretty much the same as the one I make(I'm not very good at measuring), but it never occurred to me to use parsley and I liked the dash of color. I've been addicted to these since I was a little kid and I'm ashamed to say that I probably make them 7 or 8 times a year and am very selfish. Have to admit I've done the "breakfast thing", as well...
This was really the best scalloped oysters I have ever eaten. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner with the family and made it the following week for my husband and I. No changes were made.
I loved this, as well as my family (young children included). I wanted to make oysters since I love them and was happy to find a recipe that the whole family enjoyed! Thanks!
This is so tasty! Way To Go!
Awesome - only one I will use from now on. The cayenne pepper was just the right kick! Thanks for a great recipe Chef John!
