Great Uncle Archie's Oyster Casserole

Kay Skipper


This delicious oyster casserole is another recipe from the 1800's.

Uncle Archie (my grandmother's uncle) was supposedly a great cook because he had travelled the world, learning new ways to cook food, while working for the U.S. Federal Government.

He may have been a little eccentric, but people always enjoyed his Southern hospitality when it included sterling silverware, fine crystal, and his meals made to perfection!

I am sure the rich and/or famous of yesteryear enjoyed feasting on this oyster casserole.

15 Min


20 Min


1 pt
fresh oysters, chopped in bite sized chunks, reserve liquid
4 Tbsp
egg, beaten
4 Tbsp
oyster liquid
2 1/2 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
sleeve saltine soda cracker, crumbs
1/2 c
bread crumbs
1/2 c
diced onion
salt and pepper to taste (i use 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/2 tsp salt)
1/2 c
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt butter in round Pyrex dish (2 or 3 quart)

Mix all other ingredients with butter in Pyrex dish. (At this stage, the casserole should not be soupy, but should be very moist and have the appearance of a Southern dressing type of dish. If it is soupy, add a few extra crackers.)
Bake for 10 minutes on middle oven rack @ 450 degrees using an aluminum foil covering. Remove aluminum foil and bake additional 10 minutes or until top of casserole begins turning brown.

*Note* Be very watchful of this casserole as it cooks the last several minutes; you dont want your casserole to burn.

Enjoy with grilled fish and tossed sald.
