Patty Monahan’s Scalloped Oysters

Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

Crunchy, creamy, rich and loaded with sweet plump oysters, I look forward to my mom’s scalloped oysters recipe every Thanksgiving.

Serves 4

1 pint Atlantic select oysters w/liquor
1½ C saltine crackers, coarsely crumbled
1/2 C half & half
1/4 C oyster liquor
1/4 C butter, melted
salt and pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350º. Drain oysters, saving 1/4 cup liquor. Mix cracker crumbs with butter. Grease a small casserole and cover bottom with 1/3 of the cracker mix. Cover with half the oysters and some pepper. Cover with 1/3 of the crumbs and the rest of the oysters.. Lightly salt and pepper. Combine oyster liquor with half & half and pour over the oysters. Top with remaining cracker crumbs. Bake for 30-40 minutes. It’s not traditional, but I love a little tabasco on mine.
