Smoky bacon leads the way in this East Coast-inspired stuffing. If you really like oysters, add an extra can. Doubling the oysters will add about 17¢ per serving.—Sherry Thompson, Seneca, South Carolina
“I’ve had this wonderful, light recipe for more than 30 years and always use it during the holidays,” says Page Alexander from Baldwin City, Kansas. “But it’s so rich and buttery that I often serve it with pork roast or stuff pork chops with it during the year. It never fails to bring raves.”
"I came up with this recipe by sheer luck when I was trying to create a good tasting yet different side dish," explains Naomi Kay Smith of Canandaigua, New York. She tosses the crisp fries with Cajun seasoning and Parmesan cheese. "They're a bit hit with my family."
"Nothing beats good old-fashioned comfort food," confirms Amber Zurbrugg of Alliance, Ohio. "This is wonderful on a cold day." Hot sauce adds a little zip to the black-eyed peas in her quick skillet side dish.
The holidays are the perfect time to indulge in a rich and buttery dish like this. You can assemble and refrigerate it the night before, then top with the remaining crumbs and seasonings just before baking.
