LOVE THIS!!! I used smoked oysters. It was late and stores closed, no kids, so the husband and I had a craving! :o)

Had a can of (cooked) oysters on the shelf for a long time (originally for turkey dressing). I love seafood and had always wanted to try Oyster Stew. It was delicious! Easy to make. I added 2 dashes of cayenne and about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of left over mashed potatoes. Next time I wil try fresh Oysters. Portwine
