This recipe is a wonderful twist on ordinary stuffing. I increase the amount of spices since I make a larger amount of cornbread then what is needed. Made the holidays a hit!!!

This was a new kind of stuffing for me. I found that it called for the perfect amount of spices. I enjoyed it very much!

The oysters I purchased were huge and only 4 to a cup, so I cut each oyster into 4 parts. I have made cornbread & oyster stuffings in the past, but none were as absolutely delicious as this recipe! I followed the directions to the letter and the 7 people we had for Thanksgiving dinner couldn't praise this stuffing enough. I did not stuff the turkey, but baked this stuffing in a 9 X 9 glass baking dish. The turkey cavities contained fragrant veggies of largely chopped carrots, onions, celery and smashed garlic bulbs. A male guest said he makes a cornbread/oyster dressing too, and challenged me to an oyster dressing cook-off. I told him I was ready when he was and this would be my recipe.

If you love oysters then this is a great taste for stuffing. I have been making this for the past 3 years and my kids love it and they have asked that I make it again this year.
