  • Scalloped Oysters

    Everyone was soooo helpful with the Poor Mans cake recipe that my dad raved speaking with my mom this evening..she remembers a scalloped oyster recipe that grandmother used to make only during the holiday season.  Actually....I somewhat remember it, too.  I do recall that even at that young age...I liked it.  Guess I'm missing my long-gone grandparents this weekend and just want to see if I can pass tradition (or close to tradition) through her recipes.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  :)

     I am not exactly sure what scalloped means --- but since I was way young I have enjoyed this dish at Mosca's Restaurant.

    Source of Recipe

    Mosca's Restaurant

    1/2 stick butter
    1/4 cup olive oil
    2/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1/2 teaspon tarragon
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    2 tablespoons minced parsley
    2 teaspoons minced garlic
    2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
    2 - 2 1/2 dozen oysters


    Melt butter in a large skillet. Add olive oil and heat slightly. Remove pan from heat and add all remaining ingredients except oysters. Mix well.

    Place well drained oysters in au gratin dishes. Spoon equal portions of sauce over each. Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes or until browned. Serve immediately.

    You can place all oysters in one dish to cook if preferred. .................................

    Thank you so much.  Didn't think it would be that easy, but sure will try it!  My brother stated that this was the only dish missing at the Thanksgiving table this year that would have been identical to having a holiday meal at the grandparents home.  Thanks again.
