My husband and I love oysters. This recipe was so delicious and I got to use my ramekins (wedding gift) that I hardly ever use. I used about 4 dashes of hot sauce which made it hot enough for use and plenty of salt and pepper. Reminded me of my great grandmother's oyster dressing. Thanks Nurse Di.
An awsome recipe and a great southern item. Instead of using ramekins I have saved the shells from some cherry stone clams (cleaned them up real good, soaked in bleach water and ran thru the dish washer 2-3 times) to put the oysters mixture into. The presentation looks great.
My husband and I love oysters. It is one of the few things we actually agree on (ha-ha). This dish was so incredible. I cooked it in a casserole dish but may have to invest in some ramekins. I just think they are cute!! The worcestershire and green onions were the most predominant flavors and made this so yummy. I used 1/4 teaspoon of hot sauce which added to the spiciness but did not overwhelm the dish with too much heat. The cracker crumb topping was a nice touch. Thanks for another outstanding recipe.
