This is a simple oyster pie or scallop, made with oysters and oyster crackers, cream, and butter.

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups oyster crackers, coarsely crumbled, divided
  • 4 cups drained oysters, strain and reserve liquor
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or whipping cream
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

How to Make It

  1. Spread 1 cup of the oyster cracker crumbs over bottom of a lightly buttered pie plate or shallow 1 1/2-quart casserole. Sprinkle 1 cup of oysters evenly over the crumb layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat layers of crackers and oysters 3 more times, seasoning each oyster layer with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Combine 1/2 cup oyster liquor and 1/2 cup heavy cream; pour evenly over the top layer of oysters. Dot with the butter.
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Let the pie stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Position rack just above oven center.
  4. Place pie on top rack; bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until top just begins to brown and oysters are hot.
  5. Turn oven temperature to broil (550°) and broil for about 3 to 4 minutes, until well browned. ​Do not overcook, or oysters will be somewhat tough.
