Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F and toast white bread cubes 5 to 7 minutes or until barely golden.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over low heat until crisp, stirring occasionally.

Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain, and pour out all but 4 tablespoons of fat.

Add onion and celery to remaining fat in skillet, and cook over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes.

Transfer onion, celery and bacon to a bowl and add toasted bread cubes, cornbread, herbs, salt, pepper and chicken broth.

Toss well, and adjust seasoning to taste. Very gently fold in oysters.

Transfer to lightly oiled baking dish and bake at 325°F for 40 to 45 minutes until bubbly and top is lightly browned.
