This recipe is so similar to mine - I don't think I've ever measured...I do add worcestershire sauce to each layer. This was a family tradition at my house for Thanksgiving. I like it with a Steak as well (and have been known to heat them up and eat for breakfast - it grosses my family out but I love them)! Glad to see someone else is eating them!!!

Pretty much the same as the one I make(I'm not very good at measuring), but it never occurred to me to use parsley and I liked the dash of color. I've been addicted to these since I was a little kid and I'm ashamed to say that I probably make them 7 or 8 times a year and am very selfish. Have to admit I've done the "breakfast thing", as well... Awesome!

This was really the best scalloped oysters I have ever eaten. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner with the family and made it the following week for my husband and I. No changes were made.
