1 pint fresh oysters
1/2 cup butter
dash of black pepper
1/4 cup of oyster liquid
2 cup of saltine cracker crumbs
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup half and half
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain oysters and reserve liquid. Combine cracker crumbs, butter and salt in 1 1/2 quart dish. Divide cracker crumb mixture in thirds. Layer 1/3 cracker crumb mixture in dish and 1/2 oysters. Sprinkle with pepper. Repeat. Then combine half and half, oyster liquid, and worcestershire. Pour liquid mixture over layers and top with remaining 1/3 crumb mixture.
Bake for 40 minutes. Serves 8.
We always end up doubling this because it's popular - even for those not fond of oysters!
