Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) .
  2. Crisp bacon in a frying pan, drain fat off. Set bacon aside.
  3. Melt butter in a medium saucepan and sauté onion, celery, garlic and bay leaves for about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, white wine and horseradish. Cook for another 3 minutes.
  4. Pour the mixture over the cubed bread. Add reserved bacon and Clover Leaf Smoked Oysters; toss lightly. Stir in the remaining ingredients and place in a 12-cup (3L) casserole dish. Bake for 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  5. Makes 12-16 servings.

Tips:

  • Alternatively, place the stuffing inside the cavity of a 15 lb. turkey, and roast.
  • Stuffing is not just for turkeys - it can be a wonderful side dish to complete any special meal - from fish to baked chicken.
  • For some heat, use Smoked Oysters with Spicy Chili instead!
