  • Combine saltine crackers and butter in a bowl; stir until all crumbs are saturated with butter.

  • Spread 1/3 of the saltines mixture on the bottom of a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Pour half of the oysters with their liquor over the saltines mixture. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Repeat with next 1/3 of saltines and remaining oysters. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, and Italian parsley.

  • Sprinkle remaining saltines mixture over the oysters. Drizzle cream slowly and evenly over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling and browned, 40 to 45 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.

Tips

Cook's Note:

Scalloped oysters are actually better warm than piping hot, which is another reason they are such a great choice for large family gatherings.
