Need a good Oyster Dressing recipe for Christmas Dinner with the inlaws!

My father in law has requested oyster dressing. Anyone make this as a side and have a recipe recommendation? I've never had nor made it...but I've promised to bring it for him anyway.

You might try Paul Prudhomme, if Cajun flavors would work. I had his oyster dressing in a turducken I made with my family and remember liking it -- but there were lots of other, um, confounding stuffings and birds.

There is a great and easy one in Bon Appetit magazine. Should be able to find the recipe online at their site.
