    Molly53's Note:

    A wonderful oyster dish from the heart of the south, New Orleans. This would also make a memorable appetizer.

      We made this without the wine or the breadcrumbs, and baked it in a baking dish (didn't want the mess of cleaning dirty oyster shells) and it was delicious. The sauce was a little bit thin, but we ate them over crackers and everyone loved it.
