oyster dressing -
  • one stick (1/2 c) butter or margarine
  • about 1/2 c. celery, chopped very fine
  • 1 small onion, minced very fine
  • 1/2-1 green pepper (we don't like it so much so i only use a half)
  • garlic if you are a garlic fan, but not too much
  • 1/2 pint (or one pint if you really like them) oysters, drained, liquid reserved.
  • all spice, sage, thyme, other spices to suit
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped fine
  • 1 pan sweet corn bread (I use “jiffy” mix)
  • 5-6 pieces of bread, stale or toasted is better, but i've been known to get lazy and use it right out of the bag [Big Grin]
  • 1 can chicken broth
ok, saute the onion, green pepper and celery in the butter until almost done. Add the oysters and sauté those till done. if you want garlic, now is the time to add it and saute the mix a little longer. garlic will burn quickly, so don't add it until the other is almost done. Pour liquid from oysters in pan and heat well. while this is cooling, break up the bread into 1/2" chunks (or smaller) mix well with boiled egg and dry spices. i use a large mixing bowl for this. then pour the onion, pepper, celery mix over the bread mix and mix well again. press into a well greased 9x13 pan. pour chicken broth over the top and bake at 350 until crispy on top and not "mushy" inside.
