Recipe Description
Probably the simplest of all the soups and bisques is this oyster soup. It is favored by many as a good homemade dish. I remember it as a favorite dish in our home when I was a child. I used to watch my mother make it at the stove in what seemed a very short time for such a delicious soup.
