“Thirty-five years ago, a group of friends went to a little Italian restaurant south of New Orleans. We all fell in love with their oyster dressing. We ate it so often the guys made a bet to see who could duplicate the recipe. After many tries, one of our friends figured it out and won the bet. During this time I was pregnant with my son and I craved oysters any way but raw. My husband made this for me at least twice a week (35-year-old son came into this world loving oysters). Last year I found the original restaurant recipe in a New Orleans cookbook; our friend hit the nail on the head. This is his version.” - by bbyrd
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch square baking dish.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley, oregano, thyme, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper until combined, and gently mix in the oysters. Cook, stirring often, until the edges of the oysters begin to curl, about 8 minutes. Stir in the bread crumbs and reserved oyster liquid until the stuffing is thoroughly combined. Lightly spoon the stuffing into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the stuffing with Parmesan cheese.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

"My Grammy made this every Thanksgiving that I can remember. Only thing she did different was to add a couple of eggs and canned mushrooms when mixing the stuffing, and, of course, she used sage. Thank..." See morefully she taught me how to make it before she passed away. This is a great stuffing recipe!!"
"As the submitter of this recipie I need to correct a misconception. This is not an oyster dressing (I did say oyster dressing in my text, but it really isn't). That's why I called it "NOT Ya Mama's Oy..." See morester Dressing". This is sooo good, try it as written, please. Thanks!"
