My recipe I use all the time. We used to have mega buffets on 4 holidays of the year & we made several hotel pans of this every time.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Oysters help to make this dressing exceptionally moist. They are definitely a bit indulgent but perfect for the holidays. The flavor of the oysters and sage is evident in every bite. This will pair well with your holiday meal.

How To Make oyster dressing

  • 1
    THE NIGHT BEFORE: Cut cooled cornbread into 2"x2" cubes & lay out to dry overnight. Toast bread & tear each piece into about 5 pieces & leave out overnight.

    NEXT DAY: Mix all ingredients but broth (*I use bullion cubes with water) & place in a long cake pan. Pour enough broth over it to cover. Don't over mix it. It will become mushy.
