Mom's Oyster Dressing/Stuffing

Total Time

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat milk, butter, and oyster liquid in small pan.
  2. Combine bread cubes, celery, onion, spices, and oysters. (You may cut up the oysters if they are too large for you.).
  3. Add liquid and stir.
  4. Stuff poultry or place in greased foil lined baking dish.
  5. Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until poultry is done.

This is a very good recipe for an all time holiday favorite with most of my family (some prefer plain dressing, so I make both). <br/>We like our dressing really moist so I added 1 cup of organic chicken broth and an egg to the mix.<br/>Thank you for posting this!

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!
