Directions

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and celery and saute for 2 minutes. Add the eggplant and peppers and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft. Season with salt and cayenne. Add the garlic and green onions and saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the chopped oysters and saute for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the oyster liqueur, eggs, and cream together. Add the oyster mixture, bread cubes and cheese and mix well. Reseason with salt and cayenne.
