Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends and food. And while the traditional turkey dinner may be at the center of it all, there are so many side dishes to choose from. One that stands out in particular is an oyster dressing with sausage. This delicious dish combines two classic flavors: savory sausage and briny oysters.

The ingredients list for this recipe includes self-rising cornmeal, self-rising flour, buttermilk, eggs, butter, celery, onion, chicken stock, salt, pepper, garlic, thyme leaves, sage, poultry seasoning, tarragon leaves, parsley leaves, sweet Italian sausage and oysters. All these ingredients come together to create a unique flavor combination that will have your guests coming back for more.

To make the dressing you'll need to start by sautéing the onions and celery in butter until they're soft and fragrant. Then add the chicken stock and seasonings such as kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, minced garlic cloves, thyme leaves, dried sage and poultry seasoning. Once everything is combined you can add the sausage and mix thoroughly before adding the oysters. Finally fold in the herbs like tarragon leaves and flat-leaf parsley before baking in the oven until golden brown.

This flavorful side dish is sure to please even the pickiest eaters. It's also easy to customize depending on your preferences or dietary restrictions. For example if you don't like oysters you could substitute them with mushrooms or cranberries. Or if you prefer a bread stuffing instead of a meat stuffing you could use Pepperidge Farm herb seasoned cube stuffing mixed with sautéed onions and celery in butter plus whatever other add-ins you'd like such as nuts or apples.

No matter what kind of stuffing or dressing you decide to make for Thanksgiving this year one thing is certain – it will be delicious! So why not give this oyster dressing with sausage a try? You won't regret it!
