    Oyster Dressing is very good. We have a similar recipe that has been in the family for over 50 years....We have to make it on a much larger scale though as some of our gatherings may have up to 20 people.We usually make 2 giant cake pans full of it. For each cake pan we add the following.


    2eggs(Raw)
    2 cans oysters (cooked and chopped)
    2-3 bags of bread crumbs
    3/4 cup diced onion
    3/4 cup diced celery
    Add sage to taste
    3 cans chicken broth or turkey juice equiv.
    Salt, pepper, mix well, bake at 350 for 1 hour or until top is brown and somewhat dry. It will still be moist on the inside.


    My son has an allergy to eggs,chicken and turkey so we substitute beef broth with no eggs and make his own smaller batch. It is good too.
    Also must cook him a Ham!:big_smile:

    Thanks Richard; we ate out for Thanksgiving yesterday (for the first time in our lives) but my middle daughter called this morning early and says she just can't stand it, she's just gotta cook, so, as usual the potluck is on, I'm gonna bring your oyster dressing!

    Actually, thanks to all of you for posting your recipes.

    Well, I'm still over here at her house and we just got done eating a little while ago, and the oyster dressing was a big hit, I'll have to bring it next year now so they say.

    The only variation from Richard's recipe was that I used evaporated milk instead of fresh and added a stick of real butter. Also I think next time I may include the juice (or some of it) from the canned oysters instead of draining them.
