Very good. I didn't have red onions, so I used yellow. I also used chicken broth instead of the liquid from the oysters. I took this to a Christmas gathering and it got rave reviews, even from those who don't like oysters.

excellent recipe. The only changes I made was I added a can of chicken broth and doubled up on the corn bread and the white bread. Made it juicy, but yet not runny

This was my first time every making dressing at all. Instead of the red & green onions, I used 1 yellow onion. I chopped the onion and celery up very fine. For the soft bread cubes, wasn't for sure what it meant, so I tore about regular loaf bread slices for it-you can see them in it, one thing I didn't like. And I used chicken broth instead of the oyster juice. Someone also told me to use the instead of the cornbread not the edges or bottoms. It's delicious! Can't wait for the rest of the family to try it! Thanks!
