I am the only one in my family that likes oysters, so this doesn't get made very often.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a great twist on a holiday favorite for the oyster lovers. This stuffing is flavorful from all the fresh veggies mixed with the briny flavor of the oysters along with the traditional seasonings. The stuffing is very moist and the cajun seasoning gave this dish just a little kick.
