This has been served on Christmas Eve in our family forever. We also serve Chili, for those who don't care for oysters. Great with buttered crackers warmed in the oven, or plain oyster crackers straight out of the bag.

Very bland as is. I melted 1/2 cup butter in the pan, added the oysters with the juice, added garlic salt, paprika, and celery seed. Cooked the oysters until done, added 2% milk and heated through. Much better with these additions. By adding the oyster juice it actually tasted like oyster stew.
