Oyster Dressing

Standard

With Thanksgiving upon us, I thought I would add my Oyster Dressing recipe hoping you will give it a try!
Oyster dressing has been a part of Thanksgiving since the days of Colonial America and lives on here in the south during the holiday season. If you have never tried Oyster Dressing, you don’t know what you have been missing!

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 11 clove garlic, minced well
  • 1/2 tablespoon finely chopped green pepper
  • 31/4 cup finely chopped celery
  •  tablespoons minced parsley
  • 1 cup oysters, drained and chopped (reserve the liquid)
  • 1 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup oyster liquid or clam juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 11/2 teaspoon salt
  • /8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a large skillet, (cast iron if you have it) over medium-high heat, sauté garlic, onion, green onion, green pepper, celery, and the parsley in 2 tablespoons of butter, until the vegetables are soft. Add chopped oysters and sauté for 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and add the bread crumbs, oyster liquid and remaining ingredients and stir well.

Put the mixture into a greased, 8×8-inch pan and bake at 375 degrees until golden, about 25 minutes. Also, you can lightly stuff a turkey with the dressing and bake the turkey as usual.
