Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Slowly cook and stir celery and onions until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in oysters, poultry seasoning, bread and enough turkey drippings to keep the mixture moist but not soggy.
  3. When bread pieces are thoroughly coated, transfer the mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover and bake in the preheated oven 30 to 45 minutes, until lightly browned.

I needed to look in a couple of cookbooks to find out what to do with the oysters, since I had never used them before. Their advice: simmer about 5 minutes in saucepan, drain and chop. Also, I needed much more than 1/2 cup drippings. I used chicken broth (about a cup or more). Most people liked this at our pitch-in. I guess you need to like the flavor of oysters. I would also advise greasing the baking dish. Enjoy!

Tastes even better the second day! This also freezes well, and we make a double batch the night before Thanksgiving so that we have some for Christmas Dinner. Wonderful recipe!

Had this recipe advertised itself as something better than "basic," I would have ranked it lower, but since it delivers on "basic" very well, I've ranked it as a 4 (for delivering what was promised). This dressing is really mild and as written needed more oysters. In all fairness to Lisa, she notes that the oyster volume should be adjusted to taste, which I will do next time. I will research spices to add next time I use this recipe. The large baking dish required in the instructions was too large. The dressing was spread too thin and could have easily been burned. I will use a smaller baking dish next time.
