Oyster Stuffing

This classic New England style side dish is the stuff holiday dreams are made of. Shucked oysters. Fluffy French bread. Smoky bacon. Seasoned with the robust flavors of McCormick® parsley, thyme, nutmeg and sage. If you’ve never cooked homemade Oyster Stuffing, this is the year to start. Photo Credit: Julie Gransee of Lovely Little Kitchen.
