Canadian.kitchen's picture
Ingredients
1 pt oysters
5 cups milk
3 tbs butter
3/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Pinch cayenne
1/2 cup fine cracker crumbs
Chopped parsley
Directions

Drain oysters and save juice.
Pick out and discard any bits of shell.
Scald milk, butter, salt, pepper, cayenne and cracker crumbs together, preferably in a double boiler to prevent scorching.
Add oysters and juice and heat the mixture until the edges of the oysters curl, about 3 or 4 minutes.
Taste and correct seasonings, adding a few more cracker crumbs if you like a thicker mixture.
Serve immediately in hot soup bowls and sprinkle with a little chopped fresh parsley.
