From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com.
1-2 potatoes, peeled and chunked
Peel potato, cut into cubes and microwave, covered, 3 minutes. Set aside. In large saucepan with heavy bottom, melt butter and cook the onions slowly without browning for at least 5 minutes. Add the oysters and their liquid and cook and stir 2-3 minutes, or until they curl at the edges. Add the potato pieces, salt, pepper, milk, and half and half. Bring to a boil, reduce and simmer gently 5 minutes to blend flavors, do not let it boil. Add the clams, sherry, paprika and pepper. Simmer several minutes until clams pop open. Taste and correct seasonings. Serve with oyster crackers.
