Ingredients:  
3 loaves of stale bread, broken into small pieces
6 eggs, beaten well
1 pt fresh oyster cut in half
1 c onion, chopped
1 c celery, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
sage to taste, optional

Directions:
Directions:
Cook onion and celery in water until tender. Use warm turkey broth and pour over broken bread, add celery and onion, eggs, salt, pepper, and sage. Place oysters and broth to make the dressing very moist. I add hot water if the dressing isn't soupy and sometimes melt extra butter with water to make it richer. Bake at 400 until done, about 30-40 minutes; stir 2-3 times while baking. This makes a large roaster full of dressing.

Some don't care for oysters, so if plain dressing is desired, omit the oysters and add the sage BEFORE it is baked.
