Freezing left over oyster stuffing?

I made a terrific oyster stuffing, using the vacuum packed oysters packaged in their liquor from Whole Foods, and would like to freeze the leftovers. Is this safe to do? Thanks in advance, I get such helpful information from this community. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I've never frozen stuffing, been too busy eating it all, but it's bread, which freezes well, so try it. I don't think safety would be any issue whatsoever, properly packaged for the freezer and used in a timely manner, but the stuffing might suffer a bit by becoming mushy and the oysters may change texture. I googled your query and it seems very doable, although I saw a few comments about quality issues. Check this link:
There were other google links about the same subject, basically all success stories.
Some links had info about reheating it properly as well.
Good luck and hope you had a good Thanksgiving as well!
This is the first year I made too much stuffing and I'm going to freeze mine...it should be fine. I would let it thaw completely before heating and do it in a oven so that it can crisp up a bit instead of a microwave. JMO.
