My family has served oyster dressing with Christmas dinner for years. I was without my grandmother's old cookbook this year, so I made this - with a few modifications - and my family raved about the flavor! Modifications: I used two 8-oz cans of oysters and reserved the liquid from the can. I ended up using the reserved liquid from both cans of oysters in step 2 plus an additional 1/2 cup chicken broth after step 3 - more than tripling the amount of liquid called for in the recipe. You have to use judgment on the amount of liquid to add, and you will get it right with experience. The dressing mix should be thoroughly moistened but not dripping with more liquid than it can absorb. (I used dried out wheat bread from a normal storebought loaf; a crustier artisan bread might call for slightly less liquid.)
This recipe was fair,I found it to be dry.
This was awesome, I've been looking for years for a recipe for oyster dressing "just like Mom used to make and this it! Will definetely be on the Thanksgiving menu from now.
I decided to make this recipe after my dad begged for oyster dressing at Thanksgiving. After using the suggestions of Adam, it came out perfect. It was a hit for the oyster lovers and my dad came back for seconds and asked for a to go helping. That's a winner in my book! Thanks you
Very good. I didn't have poultry seasoning, so I used Thyme and Sage in equal proportions -- BF liked it very much, but suggested just a bit more sage next time.
This was WONDERFUL! Just like my grandmother made.
I made this for Thansgiving and found it dry and dull.
