Scalloped oysters is one of the "must-haves" on my husband's Thanksgiving menu. I've tried making them before without much success. This time I scored a huge hit! He told me to make sure I hang onto this recipe. The 2 things I did a little differently: I used half & half in place of milk. And Ritz Garlic Butter crackers instead of plain Ritz. Excellent simple recipe! Thank you! Read More

This recipe is o.k.. There is nothing wrong with it except it's a little dry. I found it to be boring and taste mostly like buttery crackers. Read More

I used this recipe at Thanksgiving....It was a great success! The only change I made was to use half and half in place of milk. I found I didn't have to use more than 1/2 cup and felt it made the recipe "richer". Read More

All I can say is WOW! This was so delicious. I used exactly the amount of ritz and bread crumbs specified and only 3/4 one stick of butter instead of a whole stick and it was still plenty buttery. I also used clam juice (with a little more than the recipe called for since a few people said it was dry in their reviews) because we had steamed oysters the night before and I didn't have any oyster juice left. I also cooked it at 400 instead of 450 and it was Perfect at thirty minutes. We are thinking about adding sauteed onions next time for more texture. Try this you won't be disappointed!!! Read More

I have found ritz crackers work the best and baking at 450 is way to high. 375 works just fine. Read More

I made these as the recipe directed and they turned out very well. For someone who enjoys oysters which I do it really showcases them. I made them again for my sister who normally will not eat oysters and I wanted to spice it up disguise the "fishy" taste so I added 1/4 tsp of chili powder and 1/4 cup of salsa. Read More

The BEST ever!!! I did saute an onion in the butter before I added it to the crackers and crumbs. I will use this recipe many many times. Read More

Delicious. I sauteed 2 stalks finely chopped celery and 2 scallions and dusted each layer with bread crumbs instead of adding to the Ritz crackers and butter mixture. I would make this again. Read More
