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.

How to Make Great Uncle Archie's Oyster Casserole


  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
