Grandma's Oyster Casserole
From the Kitchen of our President's Grandma, so you know its good!
In a deep Casserole dish:
Layer the bottom with shucked oysters (save the liquor!).
Then add a layer of crushed saltines.
Cover the saltine layer with chips of butter (or margarine).
Continue layering in this order until near the top of the casserole.
Pour the oyster liquor over top of the layers.
Then gently pour in heavy cream (or milk) into the casserole until it comes up to near the top.
Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes and serve hot.
Hint: for a little kick, add some Old Bay between each layer.

Hangtown Fry
Don't know where the name came from, but its a great breakfast lunch or supper!

Take as many oysters as you feel like eating and shuck them out. Put a dollop or two of sour cream in a frying pan and add the oysters. Sautee the oysters over medium heat until the edges start to curl. Throw a few eggs in the pan and scramble them up. Spice it up with hot sauce, old bay or whatever you like! This is a great way to use up left over oysters from the night before! (as if there's ever leftovers)

Here's what we fed the Governor!

Roast oysters round side down over a hardwood charcoal fire until they pop. Remove the top shell (watch out they're hot!) Baste with a mixture of equal parts margarine, hot sauce and chopped garlic. Wait till they sizzle. Serve warm.

mmmm mmm Good!
