Oyster Dressing

Oyster Dressing

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces butter
  • 2 cups onions, finely chopped
  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 4 dozen oysters, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Peccorino Romano cheese, grated
  • 3 cups coarse unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cup oyster liquor
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Instructions

Melt the butter over medium heat. Saute the onions, celery, green onions and garlic until tender, stirring frequently. Gradually add the chopped oysters. Cook about 4 minutes, constantly stirring. Add the parsley; stir. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cheese and pepper; stir. Remove from the heat and begin stirring in the bread crumbs a little at a time. Add the pecans and oyster liquor and stir. Cover and let stand for 3-5 minutes. Salt to taste. The dressing can be stuffed into the fowl of your choice, or it can be served as a side dish with seafood. To serve as a casserole, spoon the dressing into a buttered casserole dish, sprinkle the top with unseasoned bread crumbs, dot with butter and bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Yield: 2 quarts, about 8 servings.
