Directions:
Chop onions, celery, shallots, parsley and bell pepper. Place meats in a 4 quart pot and brown slowly, add onions, bell pepper and celery and cook down. Add salt and pepper, season well. (If using oysters, pass oysters in blender or food processor for a few seconds and blend well, pour into meat mixture at this time.)
Soak bread in a little water and mash well, add bread to pot and cook for about 15 minutes.
Separate egg yolks from whites. When meats, and vegetables are cooked down enough, add chopped shallots and parsley. Cook for about 10 more minutes. Add egg yolks one at a time and stir well. Cook for about 5 more minutes. Let cool a little and skim off excess grease. Top with bread crumbs . Place in 350 oven for about 30 minutes. Ready to serve.

Personal Notes:
Mom did not use oysters, she always put in a little extra celery. On holidays when cooking turkey, use the turkey gizzard and liver, ground up and cook down with meats.
