(Image courtesy of NY Times cooking) Is it called "dressing" or "stuffing"? Is there a difference? Whatever name you might use, we think it's better with oysters. It might sound odd, but many people love the savory and subtly briny flavors that oysters bring to this traditional Thanksgiving dish. You can find tons of variations of this recipe online, but if you're not in the mood to do the research, try out Lucy Buffett’s Oyster Dressing via NY Times cooking.
These comforting and savory seafood puff pastries are a great accompaniment to any group dinner because they can be scaled down to create bite-sized starters, or scaled up to serve as a hearty side. You can also play around with the type of fish you use for filling and the herbs you use to top them off!
