We always have oyster stew on Christmas Eve. It is our Christmas tradition. Serve with garlic toasts or oyster crackers. You may also add crispy bacon or potato to this stew.

Oyster Stew


  • two (12 oz.) fresh oysters, shucked and cleaned
  • 1 quart (or more if you desire) half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup minced celery
  • 3 TBS sweet onion, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


Melt butter in a skillet and sauté celery and onion until tender. Pour half-and-half into a dutch oven and add the butter, celery and onion mixture. Stir until almost to a boil and add the cleaned oysters.

Oysters are cooked with the ends curl. Turn off the heat and it's ready to be served.

Wine Suggestion:

  • California Chardonnay
