Enjoy a wonderfully tasting stuffing!

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp. butter.

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced.

  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh sage (or 1 tbsp. dried).

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts.

  • 2 cups dry ¼-inch bread cubes.

  • 24 fresh oysters, shucked and diced, liquor reserved.

  • 2 medium-size onions.

  • 3 ribs celery, thinly sliced.

  • ½ pound smoked ham, cut in ¼-inch dice.

  • 1 cup fresh coarsely chopped parsley.

  • 3 eggs, beaten lightly.

  • Salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions:

  1. Saute Vegetables: In a large skillet, melt 4 tablespoons of butter. Add diced onions, diced green bell pepper, and thinly sliced celery. Saute until the vegetables are tender, approximately 4 to 5 minutes.

  2. Add Aromatics and Nuts: Stir in chopped fresh sage (or dried sage), diced smoked ham, and chopped walnuts. Cook, stirring, for an additional 3 minutes.

  3. Prepare Oysters: In a separate bowl, combine the dry ¼-inch bread cubes with diced fresh oysters. Reserve the oyster liquor.

  4. Combine Ingredients: Remove the skillet from heat. Stir in fresh coarsely chopped parsley, bread cubes with oysters, beaten eggs, and the reserved oyster liquor. Mix well to combine.

  5. Season: Add salt and pepper to taste, adjusting the seasoning according to your preference.

  6. Stuff Turkey: Use the prepared Oyster and Smoked Ham Stuffing to stuff a 10 to 12 pound turkey.

Note:

Make sure the stuffing reaches a safe internal temperature (165°F or 74°C) when cooked inside the turkey. Alternatively, the stuffing can be baked separately in a casserole dish. Adjust the quantity of salt and pepper according to your taste. Enjoy the rich and flavorful combination of oysters, smoked ham, and aromatic herbs in this stuffing!
