"This is my take on the oyster stew that my mom used to make when I was a child. I kind of gussied it up a bit by adding some fresh veggies, thickening the soup, and adding cheese."

I loved this recipe although I did make a few changes, I used 2 lbs of fresh oysters and added a 1/2 lb of bacon (chopped and fried crispy) I double the sauce and used Heavy Whipping cream instead of milk. 8 oz of mushrooms and a red onion chopped. This is wonderful chowder!! Thanks

I grew up with oyster stew that was simply milk, butter and oysters... and is still a favorite. This is a new dimension... very tasty, very different but still showcasing the oyster flavor. I did as another reviewer suggested and added bacon (diced and crisply cooked). I also added a bit of salt and about a teaspoon of habanero sauce. Wonderful!

Excellent recipe! I used some 1/2 & 1/2 to make a little creamier and used Paula Deens house seasoning. This one's a keeper.
