Bacon & Oyster Stuffing Recipe

Bacon & Oyster Stuffing Recipe

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

"This stuffing was very rich but delicious. I doubled the osters to 16 oz because 8 didnt seem like enough. Also I used a pound of bacon. This seems like a great recipe to play around with by omitting the oysters and adding other flavors. I would make it again for sure it was a big hit for Thanksgiving."
