3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley, Herbes de Provence, or herbs of your choice
1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
4 to 6 cups day old bread, cubed (or crumbs) (can also use commercially prepared)
1 cup or 1 jar fresh oysters with juice, whole or chopped
1 cup (or more as needed) of broth, water, or liquid from cooking giblets

OPTIONAL: sautéed and chopped sausage, mushrooms, water chestnuts, olive, nuts

Sauté onion, garlic, and celery in butter or oil
Season with parsley, salt, pepper and herbs
Add paprika if using

Do not stuff turkey until ready to cook.  Stuff neck and body cavity lightly.  (Can also be baked in a casserole dish instead.)  Bake turkey as usual.  Enjoy!
