This is my grandmother's oyster stuffing recipe that has been handed down. It is a favorite for Thanksgiving and Christmas and very simple to make. If you cook your turkey at 325 degrees F, it will be perfect if the stuffing is cooked alongside it at that temp as well. It can also be baked in a muffin tin for individual servings.

  • Bring the turkey broth to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat, and melt the margarine in the broth. Stir in the stuffing mix until thoroughly combined. Transfer the stuffing to a large bowl. Stir in pork sausage, ground beef, onion, and egg until the mixture is well combined, and lightly mix in the oysters, turkey giblets, poultry seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Transfer the oyster stuffing to the prepared baking dish, and cover dish with foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the sausage and ground beef are cooked through and the stuffing is crisp and lightly browned, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note

To make broth: Simmer the turkey giblets in a small saucepan of lightly salted water, uncovered, for about an hour; drain.

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and my family loved it. I used chicken broth instead of turkey broth and I sauteed the onion in butter/oil along with a couple ribs of celery. I added 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper but I probably could have skipped the added salt because the oysters were salty enough. I'm sure I'll make this again. It was very easy to make and there wasn't a lot left over which is always a good sign. Read More

Great flavors in this one! I switched out the beef with bison to reduce the fat and used hot sausage and red pepper to kick it up a bit. I also added shitake mushrooms. Need to remove the foil early to brown the top. Read More

While I don't like oyster dressing, my husband was craving one of his childhood Thanksgiving favorites. His grandmother would make oyster dressing every year. I knew completely nada about it beyond I'd never made it because I didn't like it. I chose this recipe because it looked easy enough to make and it had good reviews. I made a few changes, but they were omissions, not additions (meats). To my delight (and my husband's), this is EXACTLY like his grandmother used to make! He even forewent a lot of other side dishes to eat more of this. A keeper and I thank you!! Read More

I found this recipe and started making this about 3 years ago and it is now a requested favorite. I use chicken broth instead of turkey broth (mostly because I usually have chicken broth), I usually x1.5 the oysters (upon request), and started using suggestion to saute onions beforehand, but the first time I made it exactly like the recipe calls for and it works perfectly too.
