1/4 cup chopped celery

2 cups small diced eggplant

1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper

1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

Salt and cayenne

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 pound shucked oysters, roughly chopped

1 1/2 cups oyster liqueur

6 eggs, lightly beaten

1 quart heavy cream

3 to 4 cups day old bread, cubed

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions
