    3       sm           Loaves French Bread
      1/2   ts           Garlic powder
    2       tb           Melted butter
    3                    Doz fresh oysters
    2       tb           Melted butter
   First, almost split the loaves lengthwise, leaving a hinge. Scoop out the
   soft middle and save the crumbs. Then add a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder (not
   salt) to 2 Tbls melted butter, and brush the cavities.
   Next, drain the oysters and save the liquid.  Saute' them in the rest of
   the butter till the edges curl - about 5 minutes. Put the oysters into the
   loaves, mix the crumbs you saved with the oyster liquid you saved, and add
   them, too.  Shut up the loaves now. STOP HERE.
   Then wrap them in cheesecloth dipped in milk, twisting the ends and tucking
   them under the loaf.  Bake them on a baking sheet for half an hour at 350^.
   Cut them in half before you serve them.

   (Note from the book: Eddy was a San Franciscan who owned a bar and made
   small oyster loaves for his married male customers to take home to their
   wives. These were pacifiers. But Eddy is dead now, and Mother must pacify
   herself.  This is good for a special lunch. I also know a family who has it
   traditionally as Christmas Eve supper.)
