Scalloped Oysters

Kelly Lollman


This recipe was given to me by a friend at my former workplace. This is a side dish that my Grandmother used to serve at every holiday dinner. Now, my Dad and I seem to be the only ones that appreciate it. I'll be making this tomorrow for the two of us.

  • 1 qt
    oysters in their liquor
  • 2 c
    crushed crackers (keebler club crackers)
  • 1 tsp
  • 1 stick
    melted butter
  • 1 1/2 c
    heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp

How to Make Scalloped Oysters


  1. Drain the oysters, reserving 1/2 cup oyster liquor for later.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over a low flame. Add the salt, pepper and smoked paprika and whisk until blended. Add the crushed crackers and stir until well blended.
  3. In a 9x9" baking pan, spread about 1/4 of the cracker mixture. Place about 1/3 of the oysters over them. Repeat this process until the crackers and oysters are gone, ending with a layer of cracker mixture on top.
  4. In the same saucepan that the butter was in, whisk together the oyster liquor, heavy cream and Worcestershire sauce. Pour this mixture over the layered crackers and oysters.
  5. Cover the oysters and place in the refrigerator for at least three hours. Let stand at room temp for about 20 minutes before baking.
  6. Place pan on center rack in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F and bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until the liquid is bubbly and topping is golden brown.
