As you start to think about thanksgiving, it might be nice to make a stuffing that's a little different from your average. This recipe has a bit of an asian flair with the added oyster sauce, courtesy of Lee Kum Kee.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Meanwhile, cook bacon in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain, reserving fat in skillet.
If bacon renders less than 1/4 cup fat, add enough oil to skillet to total 1/4 cup fat. Cook onions, celery, thyme, garlic, and pepper in fat in skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to bowl with bread cubes, then stir in bacon, parsley, butter, oyster sauce and oysters. Drizzle with stock, then season with salt and pepper and toss well.
