"When my husband asked for oyster casserole for Thanksgiving, I cringed. Looking for recipes I cringed again until I found this one. It was DELICIOUS and vanished. The only change I made was to cut the oysters(which were huge!) in thirds to spread them out. Definately will make again; have given the recipe away already!"
