This Easy Oyster Stew Recipe has been a part of my life (and my husband’s life) ever since we can remember. Both of our mothers always made this tasty stew at Christmastime. My mother also made Oyster Dressing every Thanksgiving, (we’ll talk about oyster dressing another day).
(In case you didn’t know, there is an American tradition of eating Oyster Stew on Christmas Eve.)

Now just because our mothers both made Oyster Stew around the holidays doesn’t mean that it can’t be enjoyed all year round! Nope! Just ask my husband and he’ll tell you that I make this recipe randomly throughout the year. Not only do we love the taste, we love how quickly it all comes together.
Another great thing about this Easy Oyster Stew Recipe is that it’s naturally gluten-free! (Just be sure to use gluten-free crackers instead of oyster crackers.)
If you are on a dairy-free diet you can easily substitute the milk with a non-dairy option and omit the butter. Dairy-free options such as almond, soy, cashew, hemp, coconut, rice, or oat milk will work. However, please realize that the overall taste and consistency may change when using alternative types of milk.
