"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."

"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...

"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.
