New England Oyster Stuffing

This traditional East Coast stuffing is a favorite from the Georgia coast to the docks of Maine, though New England is often cited as the origin of the recipe. It's said that the oysters create a moister stuffing, but we love that it's one more way to highlight the delicious flavor of oysters during their prime season. A holiday favorite for many of our customers, follow the recipe below for a taste of East Coast tradition. This recipe is good for a 12 to 20 lb. bird.
