So, what is everybody else having for thanksgiving dinner?

Normally we go to inlaws, and my parents, eat way to much, sometimes drink too much, but always a good time.  Parents have a number of health issues and it has been decided to hold off, and can say I will really miss it.  But I do think it is the prudent thing to do.  So my wife and I were planning on making dinner on our own.  So we bought all the traditional stuff we need.  Then to find out my mother in law is going to make everything anyway, and drop it off.  Anyone need a 15# turkey?

Don’t know if the oyster pie is a southern thang or not. That’s the one thing I look forward to each thanksgiving and Christmas.   I could eat just that and as desert as well

Would love to have an oyster pie, or oyster casserole, recipe.  Please share if you have one you think is great!

Reach out to SelbyLowndes and GLS.  One or the both of them posted a very traditional recipe for it last year.  Both of those gentlemen are from the part of the country where folks know how to make that dish.

 

 

 

I found it in my Bookmarks--this is the recipe one of them posted and said was very good and authentic.

Great!  Thanks!  I just ordered my oysters, and I'll pick them up at the oyster farm tomorrow!  I'm hoping this will be a new tradition around our Thanksgiving table.  If the gang isn't wild about them, I will eat it all myself!  When I was a kid here, and other northern places I fished, we were able to pick our own oysters.  Those days are pretty much gone.  But I love them critters.

Nothing. I have to work. Usually they spring for some turkey or brisket, but this year the turds on day shift all cried and demanded fajitas. Fajitas. On Thanksgiving. This is Texas, they can have fajitas every day of the week. And I hate fajitas. So I guess I'll eat some tuna or something else stanky and leave the can in the trash for them to sniff in the morning when they're all hungover.

here you go. Again this is a recipe that is only in is mind( for the life of me I don't understand why people just don't write this stuff down).

Amounts depends on size of pie.

In a buttered casserole dish, add crush  saltines mixed with 1-2 pieces of toast cut up; spread some of this in the bottom of dish, add oysters ( more the better), do with butter, salt and pepper; continue layers of saltine, toast and oysters, atleast 3 layers ending with just the crushed saltines. You can add a few drops of hot sauce to the layers if you like. Then pour half and half milk over it so it gets juicy. H&H milk gets soaked up. Let it set in fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Bake 45min on 400.  If the casserole dish is really big may need to bake a little longer.

 

hope this works.  This is probably my most favorite dish . I wish it was made more often.
