Reviews for Scalloped Oysters
"Made this for my husband and it was OK but not one I would make again. Did not bring out the good oyster taste to me. My husband loves almost anything and he did not care for this either."
"This was not good, I like my old recipe with crackers...no eggs"
"In order to make it a little healthier, to half of the recipe I subbed egg beaters for the eggs, used fat free 1/2 & 1/2, added a cup of peas, cut the salt in 1/2 and added a 1/2 tsp. of Old Bay. What a delicious meal! Will do again."
"In a 1 1/2 qt casserole, half of the recipe worked wonderfully. That was enough for 4-6 people."
"This recipe reminded me of something I had as a kid on my first trip to southern US. I've been looking for this since then. I would add a little salt and more pepper as my husband and myself love pepper. Great recipe."
"We have had this in our family for years too. Pennsylvania, Ohio, and I am in Texas now. I was told that when my great grandmother was alive they would ship the oysters in crates. I would love to know where it originated from...I know that it is either Scotland or England...Tawna Brown Texas"
"It is a family tradition that, for Christmas eve, no meat is fed. Instead, we make up 13 dishes of variety. As fish can be included, this recipe sounds like a winner to me. Thank You Marty. Can't wait to try it.GranMarion"
