Scalloped Oysters

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by rochsann

This recipe from an old Better Homes and Garden cookbook is a favorite my mom would make for my dad at holidays. My mom adapted it a little by decreasing the amount of cracker crumbs and increasing the amount of butter. I make it for my dad now, and I have found that I like it too.

We loved this recipe and enjoyed it as part of our Thanksgiving Menu! We didn't find the oysters mushy at all (we used the small grade oysters), but found them creamy, fresh and delicious! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. My family has asked that we include this in all of our future Thanksgiving Dinners!
