- While potatoes are hot add buttermilk, 2 sticks butter, garlic, parsley and chicken bullion to the pot and season with salt and black pepper. Mash as if preparing mashed potatoes.
- Add half and half to the pot. Whisk over low heat until the mixture forms a thick paste.
- Add buttered oysters, oyster liquor, approx. half of the whole milk to pot. Bring to a low boil, whisking constantly. Slowly add more milk until the broth is “stew thick.”
