    Very good flavor --- easy to prepare. I made a couple of changes -- used 1% milk, added about 1/2 C whole corn, some fresh thyme and used Chicken of the Sea canned oysters -- I can imagine how wonderful the bisque must be using fresh oysters, but canned is what I had in the pantry. I think the soup base would be good with clams as one reviewer noted using. We had the bisque with grilled cheese & tomato sandwiches. Quick, but tasty meal.

    Excellent bisque. Nice texture and flavor. Easy, too.

    I loved this recipe. I made a double batch and it was gone in no time.

    Used canned clams and skim milk, omitted the half and half, so to make up for lack of butterfat, I added 1 T butter. Wonderful recipe, easy to make and very satisfying.

    This bisque is light and creamy and an absolute hit at our Christmas dinner. I can't wait to make it again!

    Very good flavor. Made as directed, but for some reason it curdled when I added the oysters. Still tasted good. Next time, will leave out the rice -- my family didn't care for it.

    This was good, but I probably wouldn't make it again. It's missing something, but I can't put my finger on it.

    Excellent!! Changed the oysters to clams, added a little more pepper, added corn and dried parsley. Also used whole, mixed and chopped clams. This is a keeper. Ate with French bread slices. Mmmmmmmmmm rice and corn added that "something"

    I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a hit. My husband specifically asked me to keep this recipe around. I agree with the reviewer who thought it was missing something. I may try floating a pat of butter on top of each bowl next time. I may also try the corn that a couple people have added; I just didn't have any on hand.
