Old Fashioned Scalloped Oysters     Scallop Shell

 

This dish graced the Thanksgiving Table at my Aunt Vera's house at various other times throughout the year; but always Thanksgiving.  Even those (like myself) who do not like Oysters the flavor of the crackers are wonderful.   Enjoy!

Your Host,  Brad
