Linda's Oyster Dressing

If you are using this to stuff a turkey, DO NOT MAKE THIS THE DAY BEFORE! Make it just before stuffing the turkey right before you bake it. I normally serve it as a dressing side dish. This will stuff a 10- to 12-pound turkey.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a large rectangular baking pan.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Sauté onions and celery in the butter until tender; remove from heat an add a small pinch of cayenne and poultry seasoning and let cool.
  3. Combine cornbread and breadcrumbs in a large bowl; gently fold in sautéed onions, salt, pepper and parsley.
  4. Add beaten eggs and toss more; moisten with the reserved oyster liquid until moist but not soggy. Gently stir in the oysters.
  5. Pat the mixture into the prepared baking pan (it should make a 1-inch layer in the pan). Dot with remaining butter and bake about 45 minutes, until golden brown and set in the center.
