Grandma's Oyster Stuffing

Lindsey's sister, Melancholy Mommy, here.

One of the many things I look forward to during the holidays is our many food traditions. We have yummy appetizers on Christmas Eve, mimosas and a pecan roll on Christmas morning, and a huge turkey dinner later that night. Our Christmas dinner always includes a wonderful oyster stuffing. It is a favorite with everybody and Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without it.

Grandma's Traditional Oyster Stuffing
(I am in no way a chef so I hope this recipe makes sense)

2 sticks butter
2c. cream
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/2 c. chopped onion
4 c. seasoned breadcrumbs
4 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 or 3 8oz containers of shucked oysters, drained and rinsed *depending on how many oysters you would like
salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Melt butter over low heat and add onion and celery and sweat for a few minutes, add a few shakes of salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • In a large bowl slowly combine butter mixture and breadcrumbs. Be sure to mix until butter is evenly dispersed throughout the breadcrumbs.
  • Spead half of the breadcrumb mixture in a 13x9 pan.
  • Layer oysters over the breadcrumbs.
  • Top oysters with remaining breadcrumb mixture.
  • Combine cream and Worcestershire sauce and pour over oysters and breadcrumbs.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake uncovered @ 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until cream is soaked in and top is golden brown.

It's no wonder high blood pressure is a tradition in our family as well:)
