“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!”

Original recipe yields 12 servings



  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.

It sounds delicious, tho i haven't made it yet. Off the top of my head i would probably use Pepperidge Farm white bread for the sweet taste and the heavier texture than most soft breads or a French bread that is a few days old. Otherwise, i can almost taste how good it will be!



Previous reviewer: Don't ruin a recipe's rating just because it was given a wrong title. MANY families use the terms 'stuffing' and 'dressing' interchangeably. Mine included.
