Cranberry-Hazelnut & Oyster Stuffing

Mikekey *


A delicious change from that ordinary onion and celery stuffing at Thanksgiving. I give times for baking in a pan, but may be used to stuff the turkey. This is another recipe from the Chamber of Commerce Cranberry cookbook, from the Washington Coast. Sub fresh sage leaves for the thyme, if desired.
