Trying to get our oyster fix early in the new year.

Had raw oysters then

Broiled oysters in garlic butter and parmesan cheese and then oyster spaghetti.

Oyster Spaghetti
Make a small Chicken stew (fricase)
Add the oysters and continue cooking until oyster edges curl
Cook and drain pasta
Layer the pasta, chicken stew with gravy and sharp cheddar cheese in an oven safe dish.
Extra cheese on top
Bake until the cheese melts throughout and develops a crispy top

I like to scatter a few sliced olives and capers in each layer and I added some thin slices of andoille this time.

Tomorrow:

Oyster, andoille, and chicken gumbo - made the roux with duck fat :)

    Ohh Frank it all looks as well as sounds GREAT. I did not even eat an oyster this past year as they wanted like 12 bucks 1/2 doz. due to the oil and a good reason to jack the price. Hope they come down. Look forward to the gumbo post as I know it will be a winner! ;)

    Have you ever heard of an oyster loaf? I believe it is a bread with baked oysters inside. I remember them when I was very young, but that was 60 years ago..This is not an oyster po-boy! I have been trying to find that recipe for the oyster loaf.

    Frank, been trying to figure a way to grill/broil oysters for a long time and you have shown me how. Will start looking for the pan you use today and the gallon I have in the freezer will soon be setting in butter and cheese. Thanks for the tip.
