If you do not have a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, this recipe can be made in a 8-inch-square casserole dish. Feel free to substitute tasso ham with any other smoked pork product; use bacon or country ham for a classic taste, or Andouille sausage or chorizo to kick up the spice! If you're short on time, use boxed cornbread mix or pre-made cornbread. Just make sure you dry it overnight! Fresh pre-shucked oysters in liquor can be purchased for ease. If the cornbread mixture appears to be on the drier side, don't fret! Simply add more stock. The final mixture should be moist enough to clump together but not have excess liquid pooled at the bottom.
