I thought a special thread for Thanksgiving recipes was in order, as there were requests in the Thanksgiving Menu thread.

Corn Bread Stuffing with Oysters

6 cups 1" cubed stale or toasted cornbread
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (I use Earth Balance margarine)
1 cup thinly sliced shallots
2 ribs celery, peeled & finely diced
1/2 pound coarsely chopped mushrooms
1 unpeeled tart apple, cored & finely chopped (Granny Smith, etc.)
1 pint shucked oysters, drained
1/2 cup cream sherry
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
1 teaspoon salt

Melt butter & sauté shallots until soft, in large skillet, medium heat
Add celery, mushrooms & apple
Cook 5 min, stirring occasionally
Remove from heat
Combine oysters, sherry, thyme, salt & peppers in large bowl
Add corn bread and toss to thoroughly combine
Taste for salt and add as needed
Refrigerate and begin cooking timed to turkey readiness
Preheat oven to 300' F
Generously butter an 8x11x2" baking dish
Add dressing to dish
Bake 1 1/2 hour or until top is browned & crunchy
Turn oven off and cover dish with foil
Leave in warm oven for up to 45 min

If you want something easier:

1 Package corn bread stuffing
1 pint oysters
Follow directions for stuffing
Add oysters & juice
