Oh, so many memories of family gathered around Mom's large dining room table for special occasions and holiday come to mind when I make this delicious recipe! Everyone said Mom made the BEST oyster dressing, but she also remembered those who didn't eat oysters and made just plain dressing for them. Just be sure to check oysters for bits of shell and or baby seed pearls.
