The Secret to Thanksgiving Dinner: The Oysters! — 17 Comments

  1. ug i very much dislike the oyster casserole — but my dad sure does love them — i think he would agree they are a must.

    • This would be a good litmus test (A test that uses a single indicator to prompt a decision) for your boyfriend – proof that opposites attract – my lovely DIL doesn’t like them either, but your cousin does!

  2. I’ve never seen an oyster casserole like this! I think I would like this – I’m not a big fan of them on the shell raw, but cooked I might be able to handle. Can’t wait to see your pictures. Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

  4. I am 61….we ALWAYS had Scalloped Oysters for Thanksgiving and Christmas….same recipe, but we might add a little bit more liquid…to make it really puff…..I, as a kid, only liked the breading but not the oysters, now I love it all, and my sons are grown and love it. My older sister said my Great Grandmother would recieve Barrels of Oysters to make this recipe…..I have hunted and hunted for the history of this recipe, but no luck…someday I will find it…if anyone ever finds it, let me know…..I would love to add it to my genealogy.


  5. I have never made Scalloped Oysters, however, I always make a variation of ‘Rockefeller’, on Christmas Eve. I can’t wait to try this!!
