I could never find the right oyster stuffing recipe, so I made my own with bacon, onion, mushrooms, and oysters. It is great with grilled turkey.

  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet; cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Reserve drippings in the skillet.

  • Add the butter to the bacon drippings and melt over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, garlic, and mushrooms in the butter and drippings until the onion has caramelized, 10 to 15 minutes. Pour the wine into the skillet; allow the wine to warm; remove from heat.

  • Place the stuffing cubes in a large bowl. Pour the vegetable mixture over the cubes. Add the chicken stock. Fold the oysters into the mixture. Transfer the stuffing to a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 30 minutes.

Excellent! I made it exactly as stated except (of course) I put the bacon in at the same time I added the mushrooms and onions. It was the most popular dish at the feast and I'll definitely put this on our Thanksgiving tradition list. Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving. I have been looking and trying different stuffings and everybody loved it. I will probably mess around with some of the ingredients. Thank you for the recipe Read More

This year I was in charge of the Oyster Stuffing. My mother in law usually makes it so I was a little nervous. Let me tell you that this recipe is PHENOMENAL! I made exactly according to the instructions but I actually used a little bit more bacon and oysters. I will definitely be making again. Read More

Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. I'm not a stuffing fan but this was delish!! I used smoked oysters and chopped the onion instead of sliced. This is a keeper for next year!! Read More
