Southern Cornbread and Oyster Dressing

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Southern Cornbread and Oyster Dressing
This great-tasting cornbread oyster dressing is baked in the oven.


  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 cups crumbled cornbread
  • 3 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 pint shucked oysters, drained, reserve 1/2 cup liquid


Preheat oven to 350°.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Sauté onions and celery in the butter until tender, not browned.

Combine cornbread and bread crumbs in a large bowl; mix in sautéed onions, salt, pepper, and parsley.

Add beaten eggs and toss more; moisten with the oyster liquid until moist but not soggy. Gently stir in the oysters.

Pat the mixture into a large lightly buttered rectangular baking pan (it should make a 1-inch layer in the pan). Dot with remaining butter and bake about 45 minutes, until golden brown and set in the center.
