My mother was up visiting my great aunt today and was bragging about the dressing that I made for Thanksgiving Dinner(have to admit,it was pretty tasty,humble person that I am,LOL).

She mentioned that her late husband always made oyster dressing for her every Christmas and how much she missed that.Mom piped up and said"I'll bet Mike could make that for you,he's a great cook".....and showed up tonight with a gallon of oysters,onions,celery....well,you get the picture.The main problem is I haven't EVER made oyster dressing(just the regular bread type)so I'm lost now

If'n anybody has a recipe,I sure would appreciate it.Sure do love my great aunt,but I've never made it before and don't want to disappoint her after mom bragged me up

Okay Mike, this is one that I've made twice to rave reviews from those partaking. So I'll pass it on. I can't take credit for it. I found it on some time ago. Hope it helps you out.

excellent recipe. The only changes I made was I added a can of chicken broth and doubled up on the corn bread and the white bread. Made it juicy, but yet not runny
