I'm trying to decide whether to call this 3 or 4 stars, but think I'll go with 3. I halved the recipe, but did not change any ingredients or proportions. I quite liked it. However I have liked every oyster dish I have ever eaten, and I do not think I will make this again. It came out very bready (yes, you can tell that from the amount of bread crumbs, it's true), and also very rich with so much butter and oil. I think it must be like "oyster dressing" which I have heard about. If I were to make it again I would cut the butter and oil in half, at least. I would also probably reduce the bread crumbs somewhat. Thank you for an interesting experience.
