Scalloped Oysters Recipe
Recipes for scalloped oysters.
Have ready about a pint of fine cracker crumbs. Butter a deep earthen
dish; put a layer of the cracker crumbs on the bottom; wet this
with some of the oyster liquor; next have a layer of oysters; sprinkle
with salt and pepper, and lay small bits of butter upon them; then
add another layer of cracker crumbs and oyster juice; then oysters,
pepper, salt and butter, and so on, until the dish is full; the
top layer to be cracker crumbs. Beat up an egg in a cup of milk
and turn over all. Cover the dish and set it in the oven for thirty
or forty-five minutes. When baked through, uncover the top, set
on the upper grate and brown your scalloped oysters.
