My family loves this recipe and begs me to make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Serve it with turkey, ham, duck or goose - it tastes great with any type of holiday meal. If you like green pepper, you may want to add 1/4 cup to this dish.

I made this recipe as a side dish - it has great flavor but is a little wet. I had to cook it about 10 minutes longer in order for it to dry out. Read More

The taste was there but it was runny and just didn't seem like a dressing. I thought it was a waste of expensive oysters. To salvage the dish I had to pull them out and put them in a seasoned batter and flash fry them. Read More

My paternal grandmother and then mom made this every Christmas eve dinner since I was a little girl. We didn't add Worcestershire sauce so I'll have to try that. Sadly my mom passed away this year so I'll be carrying on the tradition. After reading a few recipes here I'm going to use this as the base and add celery onion and some poultry seasonings. Read More
