Oyster Dressing with Thyme


  • 2 cups oysters, drained, coarsely chopped, liquid reserved
  • 2 sleeves saltine crackers, crushed
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped green onions, including tops
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Melt butter, add onion, green onions, celery and lightly sauté. Remove from heat. Add cream, thyme, salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, combine crushed crackers and vegetable mix. Add oysters and toss lightly. Add reserved oyster liquid until stuffing is moist, about ¼ cup. Place in shallow greased baking pan. Bake until done through and crusty on top, about 30 to 40 minutes.
