NO worcestershire! I guess I like my oysters the bland old fashioned way. This is a very old recipe from my aunt. It did not give amounts so I made it today to double check. The orginal recipe called for soda crackers on the bottom layer and an oyster/soda cracker mix as the top layer. Honestly I never bothered using soda crackers until today. I put them in the bottom layer and oyster crackers on the top layer. It seemed to come out much too salty, so I would not recommend adding any salt if soda crackers are used. The recipe also clearly states to not wash the oysters. It's probably safer to wash them first, but I've never done it. I estimated the amounts of butter and milk and thought a little more butter and milk could be used, but I used a 3 qt. baking dish this time. I think a 2 qt. dish is more appropriate.
