Escaloped Oysters


  • 2 quarts of oysters
  • 1/2 cupful of butter
  • 1/2 cupful of cream or milk
  • 4 teaspoonfuls of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoonful of pepper
  • 2 quarts of stale bread crumbs
  • spice, if you choose


Butter the escalop dishes, and put in a layer of crumbs and then one of oysters. Dredge with the salt and pepper, and put small pieces of butter here and there in the dish. Now have another layer of oysters, seasoning as before; then add the milk, and, finally, a thick layer of crumbs, which dot with butter. Bake twenty minutes in a rather quick oven. The crumbs must be light and flakey. The quantity given above is enough to fill two dishes.
