Growing up, this was our favorite dish that Mom made every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Years later, hands down, it's the favorite dish for my family on the table at Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is a great recipe for all you oyster lovers, which I thought deserved to be posted again ~ it's that good!
This dish has an addicting oyster taste that makes it a special side dish. Serve it bubbly hot and it will be a requisite on your holiday table also. Talk about savory and delectable, this is it!
Let the drooling begin, Bubba! I know it’s your favorite dish on the table!
