I sautéed a med size shallot and a big clove of garlic for about 3 minutes instead of the green onion. Also the half and half gives much more flavor then the milk. Increased the oyster amount a tad and added old bay or creole seasoning instead of the cayenne pepper. Garnished with some parsley to make it look pretty and delish!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this! So easy & quick; I didn't use Old Bay as others suggested since it already called for cayenne & white pepper. YUM!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was an awesome recipe. I was given an ice chest full of oysters to shuck and remembered seeing this on one of Paula's episodes. I used yellow onion instead of the green onion. My dad (83 said he hasn't tasted a better oyster stew. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! I did not use as many green onions as is it called for. But when the stew was finsished I added them at the end. I also took the advolice of another review and added Old Bay seasoning. It made a world of difference. I swear it tasted almost just like Campbell's! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like the taste of oysters; the onion over powered the oyster flavor. It taste like milk and onion soup. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Growing up, this was a traditional Christmas Eve dish for my family. The recipe Mom made was near to this one but not quite as fancy. I now make it as our traditional dish. In its simplicity, the flavor is subtle yet rich. I add a little more salt and pepper to mine when I pour a bowl. Here is our family's recipe: makes about 1 1/2 quarts Combine & blend into a paste: 2 T flour 1 1/2 tsp salt Dash of finely ground black pepper 2 T water Stir above into: 1 pint fresh oysters & liquid, cut a few in half Simmer over low heat till oyster edges curl In a large pot scald 1 quart milk Pour oyster mixture into scalded milk Cover let stand 15 minutes off heat Add 3 T butter & reheat to serve Server with oyster crackers item not reviewed by moderator and published
Got to have Old Bay seafood seasoning as part of the ingredients and can probably leave out the onions item not reviewed by moderator and published

I loved this recipe and wanted to add the oyster stew soup like some of the other reviewers did well guess what Campbell discontinued oyster stew. I'm so pissed now. My soup was still good but I'm just so mad now, because the added flavor would have been perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
ohh forgot also add a can of cream of celery soup and make sure your oysters are fresh! Celery salt to taste is good also :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
