Grandma's Oyster Dressing

Submitted by: NDCHRISTI
Grandma's Oyster Dressing

Introduction

A family favorite - passed down from my great-great grandma.

Could definitely be slimmed down, but I'm entering it in the old-fashioned way just so I know how to count it on Thanksgiving. :)

  • This is exactly my family's recipe. Mom was alway so meticulus about putting the oysters in a strainer to make sure there was no sand or shells in the juice, the feeling each oyster with her fingers as she rinsed them... funny the ways you remember your Mom. - 11/24/12

  • Good taste, needed to be cooked longer still too juicy for me. Used fresh oysters caught in the Gulf south of New orleans. - 4/28/10
