Regardless of where this is found, it's a recipe my family (minus one sister) pulls out around the holidays. We're definitely seafood people (with the exception of the aforementioned sister), and this recipe is not for the faint of heart where that seafood flavor is concerned. However, we have a tradition of oyster stew on Christmas Eve, and just typing that has me excited! This dip is supposed to be rolled into a log, and that's pretty - I've done it - but it adds an extra step, and it's just as tasty in a pretty bowl! I whipped up a batch last week as an appetizer, and it took a lot of will-power to step away, and leave it alone! I shared the rest with my parents, who love this recipe, but I'd be surprised if it didn't make another appearance in the next few weeks.
Smoked Oyster Roll
2 T. mayonaise
1 T. onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
2 cans smoked oysters, oil drained off
Cream together cream cheese and mayo. Add onion, garlic, and worcestershire. Once mixed, fold in oysters; they will break up a little, and that's okay. Refrigerate until serving; we love to serve it with wheat thins, but whatever cracker makes your heart sing would work!
*To make the log, form into a roll, using plastic wrap. Wrap tightly & chill 1 hour to serve in log form.
