Anyone besides me use canned oysters? I know, I know, fresh is WAY beter but...

I make a sour cream dip w/ the juice and a fake Oysters Rockefeller with the oysters. I also put them in gumbo. They are cheep and easy to have on hand.

I stumbled upon the BumbleBee web site and they had lots of recipes. Do and roadfooders besides me make anything w/ these oysters?

I love those things (don't do anything much with them though). I eat them as a snack, interchangeably with canned smoked oysters. A cracker, a shake or two of hot sauce, maybe some pepper... What's not to like?

you'll not have my nose snubbed at you for using canned oysters. I use them more often than real oysters. In dips, soups, gumbo, stews and snacks.

Score, thanks! Now for the tips on how you make that stuff.

For my Oysters Rockefeller... I fry some bacon, drain the oysters and spread them in an oven dish, heat some drained canned (or frozen is better) spinach in butter and lots of lemon pepper, plop some hot sauce and mayo on each oyster, then top w/ the bacon and spinach, top w/ some parmesan cheese, broil in the oven for a few, and wala. Pretty tasty stuff. I made them for a thanksgiving snack last year and everyone brave enough to try one came back for more. Many were not so brave as to try one! I always try to make a hoardevor that most of my family is scared to try. It's a tradetion. It's fun to watch them try to decide.

I make scalloped oysters with canned oysters. I love fresh ones, but living in Illinois it is almost impossible to get fresh ones. I use oysters, crackers, milnot, hot sauce and butter and then bake them. They are one of our favorite holiday dishes. Linda

Shoot Windy, I'll find it and bring it active, pretty sure it's in the seafood section.

We can't buy oysters in a can here. The only canned oysters we get are the smoked ones, which I love. We can get fresh shucked ones in a jar and of course unshucked ones.

How much does one of these cans cost? The jars are about $8.00.

They sell the raw oysters in jars here in Texas also. They are kept cold in the fish section of the store.

The cans, like BumbleBee are boiled. I get them for $1 or so. I also get a brand called Crown Prince at Wall Mart. Both brands taste the same to me. Salsa, maybe the sell the cans somewhere up where you live. Even the dollar stores have them here.

I think there was a stuffing recipe at the BumbleBee site? Oyster stuffing sounds great to me but would never fly for holidays here in Texas, not with my family anyway.
