3 eight ounce cans of oysters
2 sleeves of Premium saltine crackers
1 cup whipping cream
1 to 2 cups whole milk
12 to 16 Tablespoons of cold butter (somewhere between one and two sticks)
2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire
Salt and pepper.
Butter a 8 or 9 inch casserole dish. Drain the oysters, saving the liquid. First lightly crush the crackers (you want them to be in small pieces, not crushed fine) and put a thin layer on bottom of pan. then add a layer of oysters (with space between them) and dot the layer with around 2 Tablespoons of butter in small pieces, then a grind of pepper. Repeat this process until you get to the top of the dish. End with a layer of crackers and butter.Then combine liquid from oysters with whipping cream, milk, and Worcestershire. Pour over layers of oysters until liquid gets to the top of the dish. It’s important that you have enough liquid to get to the top of the dish. Add more milk if you don’t have enough.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until top is browned and liquid is absorbed, around 30 minutes.
This is rich, portions should be small. Should serve between 10 and 15 people easily.
