3 qt. soft bread crumbs
4 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1 pt to 1 qt. small oysters, whole or cut in small pieces
About ¾ c. oyster liquor (use stock or milk if not sufficient oyster liquor)
½ c. butter or turkey fat, melted
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Will fill a 14-lb. turkey. A 4-lb. chicken would require about 1/3 this amount.
