Karey Butterworth! 
Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a large casserole dish, about 9 x 9 or use a large cast iron skillet (makes a nice crust!) and set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large saute pan. Sauté onions and celery in the butter for about 3 minutes until tender, then add the garlic, cayenne, parsley and thyme and saute one minute more. Add a splash of chardonnay and cook just until evaporated, about one more minute. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Toss the breadcrumbs with sauteed mixture and season with salt and pepper. Add eggs and a bit of the oyster liquid to soften until moist. Fold in the chopped oysters.

Scoop the mixture into the prepared dish or cast iron skillet and dot with remaining butter. Bake for about 45 minutes, until golden brown on top and firm in the middle.

Serves 6 to 8 | Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Splash of chardonnay
  • 6 cups bread crumbs from baguette, medium dice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 pint shucked fresh oysters, drained and chopped (reserve 1/2 cup oyster liquid)

    Dear Karey -- Just saw your new cook book at the Arts Center. Looks wonderful! I can't wait to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing this....Did you learn to cook from your Mother? Is this a recipe you grew up with? Keep up the good work in Rockport! - Janet

  2. Dear Janet

    Thank you so much! This oyster stuffing is another treasured recipe from my mother, who was born and raised in New Orleans. I developed my palate from her growing up, and her dishes greatly influenced me along with British and French cuisines.

    Looking forward to feeding you again soon!


  3. Thanks for sharing this! It sounds yummy!
