  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cups small diced eggplant
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • Salt and cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion

  • 1 1/2 cups oyster liqueur
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 3 to 4 cups day old bread, cubed
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 13 by 9-inch rectangular baking dish.

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and celery and saute for 2 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the oyster liqueur, eggs, and cream together. Add the oyster mixture, bread cubes and cheese and mix well. Reseason with salt and cayenne. Pour the dressing into the prepared pan and cover. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the dressing is set in the center. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.
