Mom always called it Oyster Dressing and we still do ~ you may remember this recipe from years past, if you’re a follower here.
It’s perfect: rich, delicious and succulent. It’s simply layers of rich butter crackers, lots of butter, half and half, seasonings and oysters. Don’t crush the crackers to crumbs; break them up with a light touch. Use less crackers for a crisper dish.
