Oyster and Cornbread Dressing

Rating: Unrated
Each year I am asked to make this wonderful dressing. The recipe has been in my family for years. Chopped oysters and chicken broth make it very moist and flavorful. For an even more moist dressing, use more chicken broth.

Holiday Oyster Stuffing

Rating: Unrated
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.

Oyster Stew for One or Two

Rating: Unrated
Wonderful main meal stew using 8-ounce container of oysters. Good served with toasted and buttered thick sliced bread and simple fruit, such as canned peaches. If stew is too thick, thin with a little more milk. If your oysters are large, they may be cut after cooking into smaller pieces.

Instant Pot® Fresh Steamed Oysters with Spicy Butter

I have baked, grilled, steamed on the stovetop, and even air fried oysters, but steaming in the Instant Pot® is hands down the best method. They are easy to open up and tender without any rubbery texture whatsoever.
