This stuffing smelled and looked great going into the oven...I love all the spices and herbs. However I found it was quite heavy and dry...maybe the 2 cups of chicken stock should be 2 cans of chicken stock??? I'll use 2 cans next time...it's definitely worth another try as the flavor and aroma is great! Read More

I've never made or had oyster stuffing and my husband hasn't had it in years so this year being the first to do it ourselves we found this recipe and it was excellent. I never eat much stuffing not loving it or disliking it really but I've even gone back for leftovers with this one. Thanks Erika!! I was sooo worried about doing an oyster stuffing and never having made it before. I followed the recipe exactly (so unlike me) and it was easy. Read More

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!!! Read More

This is very close to my grandmother's recipe except I boil the turkey/chicken neck and gizzards and use that as part of the liquid added to stuffing. I also shred the meat off the neck and add that for extra flavor. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
