Amos’ Oyster Casserole

Is there anything better than a casserole? How about a casserole featuring oysters? This one comes to us courtesy of Shirley Hogge, a long-time lover of Bena, Virginia who grew up catching dinner in her own backyard (which she still does to this day).

Enjoy this recipe from her family files: Amos’ Oyster Casserole.
