Personal Notes:
This is Mom's recipe, but for the past 5 years or so Dave and I have been making this at our house and taking it to Mom & Dad's for Thanksgiving. Each year Dave wants to increase the number of oysters, and we usually double the recipe. Dad and he are the only ones in the family who eat the oyster dressing, but they really like it so they have lots left over. Everyone else enjoys the sage dressing.
