Except for the fact that oysters create beautiful gleaming pearls, I’ve never really been an oyster person, but for some reason I have always enjoyed this treasured recipe from my mom.  Recently, a good friend requested this recipe which reminded me that this delicious dish was always on our holiday table, as well as showing up throughout the “R” months.  Ever wonder why we only eat oysters in the “R” months?  Because of oyster habits and environment, they taste much more delicious when they come from very cold waters.

Another reason for enjoying this easy, and always appreciated, entrée or side dish is because oysters are a rich source of important vitamins and minerals, B12, copper, zinc and iron. These are especially important as we age. I think we all need to develop a taste for oysters and this traditional favorite recipe is a great place to start. Enjoy!
