The best thing about a stuffed turkey is the oyster dressing. My grandma (Gigi) and mom would argue every year as to whether it was better made with cornbread cubes or regular bread. I prefer regular bread, but you decide for yourself.

I absolutely LOVE this recipe!!! I made this a few years ago for Thanksgiving and decided to make it again this year. It's so simple to make and has so much flavor! I made it exactly as the recipe states. This one is a keeper for sure!

Awesome! I chopped my oysters so that every bite had a piece of oyster. It's delicious and not overly 'fishy' so everyone will love it. Thanx for sharing!

If you like oyster dressing, you NEED to try recipe! It is wonderful! My wife is from the south, so we used cornbread for hers, and I'm a Chicagoan who grew up eating bread stuffing, so I chose the bread, but I have to confess: I liked the cornbread better! Thank you, Gigi, and thank you, Krsi Sue!!
