This Easy Oyster Stew Recipe is one that my mother makes every Christmas. It requires only a few ingredients and is ridiculously easy to make. Mom also makes Oyster Dressing every Thanksgiving, (we’ll talk about oyster dressing another day).

Now just because my mother makes Oyster Stew around the holidays doesn’t mean that it can’t be enjoyed all year round! Nope! I make this recipe randomly throughout the year. Not only do I love the taste, but I also 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.
A delicious and easy soup recipe.
- 1/2 gallon whole milk
- 3 (8-ounces each) cans of whole oysters (plus the liquid in the can)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Fresh parsley leaves
- Place milk, oysters (and the juice surrounding the oysters) salt, pepper, and butter into a stockpot.
- Simmer on low heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour; stir occasionally.
- Garnish with parsley.
- Serve hot, along with oyster crackers (GF Option - use gluten-free crackers).
- Refrigerate leftovers.
