Way to go, Sherri!! Great recipe, and so easy to make. Would have been good the way you submitted, but instead of bacon, I used some leftover ham (from Easter), [cubed]; and 2 medium potatoes [cubed]. Then garnished with 3 sliced scallions. Yummy! My husband loved it, too.

This is so delicious! I made a half-recipe and followed it very closely. I substituted sake for the dry sherry and left out the parsley (didn't have it). I never really liked oyster stew before because it was too bland. But this is SO GOOD. I will make this again. Thanks for posting.

Wow this is steps way above my normal oyster stew recipe. My family loved this. The bacon in it had me concerned it would overpower the oyster flavor.....not so. this is my new Christmas Eve soup from now on. thank you for sharing your recipe.

This recipe was easy and the results were terrific. Its the best oyster stew I've had, and I've tasted 40 year's worth. If you're a traditionalist with your stew, step it up with this recipe. You wont be disappointed!

This is just the perfect oyster stew. The only thing I did different is cut back on the Sherry by 1/2 and added cubed steamed potatoes. I cut this recipe in half because It's just me and I ate it all in 2 and 1/2 days!! That was 2 weeks ago and I want some more!!! So I'm making again tonight..I love it. Thanks so much for the recipe. This is my new go to for Oyster stew!!

I enjoyed this oyster stew. My Dad said it is the best he has ever had in his 61 years, so that is saying something. I wish it had more oysters to cream ratio, but that is easily fixed, next time I will add another 1/2 pint or so. Thanks for your recipe!!!

Tried this recipe 2 years ago for Xmas eve supper. Now I make it every Xmas!!! So delicious and hearty. I would recommend only half a recipe if making just for 2. As with most cream based soups, it doesn't reheat well.
