Jim's Old Fashioned Oyster Dressing

JimChicago52 10

"This is a family recipe to stuff your turkey with. My dad used to ask me to make a Thanksgiving dinner in June so he could have the dressing!! If you like oysters this will be your new tradition! Mix everything in a large bowl, and stuff that bird!"

  1. Spread the bread cubes out onto baking sheets or a work surface, and allow to dry for 24 to 48 hours (longer for a drier dressing).
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion, garlic, and celery until the onions become translucent, about 8 minutes. Pour the vegetables and butter into a large bowl. Lightly mix in the bread cubes, and stir in the oysters and their liquid until thoroughly combined.
