      if you like oysters, this is a great alternative to regular, boring stuffing.

      Simple and very tasty. I've been cooking oyster stuffing for years and this was by far the best result. I cooked it seperatly in a cassarole dish covered with tin foil, adding broth from the turkey and skipped all the fancy spices. I thought I over toasted the bread, but it came out perfect. Also used three eggs.

      How can you go wrong with oysters? I used 2 pints and made my own stuffing bread from a receipe on the King Arthur site at I wish I'd added the liquid from the oysters and omitted some of the broth just to intensify the oyster taste. also, I didn't chop the oysters because they seemed small. This worked out fine.
