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

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a great twist on a holiday favorite for 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. It's not spicy, just enough spice to live up to the Cajun name without being overpowering. A tasty holiday side dish. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
