16 oz. canned oysters (or fresh), drained, reserving liquid
about 15 saltine crackers, crushed
up to 1/2 cup evaporated milk (enough to soften all cracker crumbs and maintain moisture)
2 T. oyster liquid
4 dashes hot sauce (We prefer Louisiana Hot Sauce for best flavor.)
several cracks of fresh black pepper
Gently combine these ingredients and pour into small greased dish. Pour over the top 1/2 cup melted butter.
Bake 350F about 15-20 minutes until hot.
Enjoy with Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner. Recipe may be halved.
