New Orleans Italian Oyster Dressing
A slightly modified version of my mother in law’s Oyster Dressing. So delicious even non-oyster eaters will enjoy.

Total Time45 mins
- 2 large onions minced
- 7 cloves garlic minced
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1 quart oysters liquid reserved, chopped
- 2 cups Italian flavored bread crumbs
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese divided
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 9x13 inch casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly golden brown; add the oysters and cook until the edges curl. Remove from heat and stir in the bread crumbs, 3/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and the reserved oyster liquid. Mix well. The mixture should be a very moist consistency, similar to stuffing. If it’s too dry, add a bit of water to the mixture.
Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 30 minutes. Garnish with a sprig of parsley.
