Recipe by Debaylady
I worked as a waitress in Ocean City, MD at the Majestic Hotel during my summer breaks from college. The hotel is still there, but under different ownership now. This was the owner's wife's recipe. This was a favorite that was served in the dining room. Very tasty and easy to make. Today's oysters seem not to be as salty as they were 50 years ago. Today when I buy oysters I do not wash them. That decision I will leave up to you as you know the oysters you buy. I have given the ingredients as printed on my recipe, but I like to add: !/2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce, 1/8 tsp. dry mustard, and just a sprinkling of dried onion flakes to the mixture. Please note: the original recipe for the pie crust called for 1 heaping Tbsp. Crisco, but I couldn't get the word heaping in the list of ingredients.
- 1 pint oyster, washed
- 1 (10 ounce) can cream of potato soup
- 1⁄4 cup margarine, melted
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon Crisco
- warm water
