I made this last weekend for dinner. I just couldn't wait until Thanksgiving and I didn't want this special dish getting lost in all the other stuff.

1 pt. freshly shucked oysters and reserved oyster liquor.
2.5 cups crushed Keebler Club Crackers (do not use saltines)
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup minced Italian parsley
3/4 cup whipping cream
1 egg
1 tsp. Worcestershire
1/2 tsp. celery seed
freshly grated nutmeg
fresh ground pepper
cayenne to taste

Toss cracker crumbs and parsley with melted butter. Spread half in a small baking or gratin dish (about 1.5 quart size).

Layer the oysters evenly over the crumbs. Cut large oysters into pieces to make an even layer. Sprinkle on celery seed, and salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste. Sprinkle on the remaining crumbs in an even layer.

Beat egg until well combined. Add oyster liquor to the 3/4 cup of cream to make 1 cup liquid. Beat in egg and worchestershire. Pour evenly over dish. Use a spoon to pour the cream over the back of to not disturb the mixture and layers.

Dust with paprika if desired. Bake at 350F for appr. 30-35 minutes until golden brown and poofed up nicely.

Serve immediately.
