Delicious Holiday Recipe

One Thanksgiving holiday staple is stuffing. I've been to many Thanksgiving dinners (friends, extended family, in-laws) and one thing that everyone has is stuffing. One thing I've definitely noticed is everyone does it their own special way. Stuffings I've realized are like snowflakes: No two are exactly alike. Whether it's smothered in a homemade gravy or topped with sweet cranberry sauce they're all delicious to me! But one that especially struck me as unique and great tasting was one memorable Thanksgiving, when staying with friends, their parents presented us with an oyster stuffing that was simply amazing. Its close on the top 10 of my favorite holiday foods and I want to share this wonderful concoction with everyone, so they can try it this upcoming turkey day!

Oyster Stuffing

Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, minced
  • 2 (6 ounce) packages bread stuffing mix
  • 1 pint shucked oysters
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon  seasoning
  • 2 1/2 cups hot water 

Directions:

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion and celery until the onion is translucent. (about 5 minutes) Transfer the vegetables into a large bowl. Mix in the stuffing mix, oysters, melted butter, and seasoning; pour in hot water to desired moistness. If used for stuffing a turkey, stuffing will need less moisture.
Simple and delicious! It only takes a few minutes of preparation time, and you'll have the tastiest stuffing yet!
Bon appetit!
