DH & I attended his sister's wedding at Monmouth Plantation located in Natchez, MS where our first dinner course was a bowl of Oyster & Mushroom Soup that was out of this world. We were still talking about how good it was on the drive home and decided we would cook it the next day. I didn't have their recipe, but I concocted this recipe after researching many many different Oyster Soup recipes on the internet. I combined a little of this and a little of that and this is the end result. It doesn't taste exactly like Monmouth's soup, but it isn't half bad either. As a side note, I'm not a big fan of oysters but I will eat certain dishes with them. I think anyone who is a non-oyster lover would like this as long as they just removed the oysters from their bowl.
