This is a meat stuffing my family has used all my life and before. This was given to my mother by her mother, and I imagine, her mother. Our whole family used this recipe. My daughter makes this stuffing as well, and now my granddaughters have the recipe so they will eventually use it.
It is a very tasty stuffing so we make "tons" of it to freeze or use over the holidays. It's good on toast with gravy as a hot open sandwich. Or with turkey slices and gravy as a leftovers meal.
You can make it a day or so ahead, but you must bring it to room temp if you are going to stuff your bird with it.
ETA: I have always made the stuffing and put it into the turkey HOT. That way there is no problems with the turkey being overdone to make sure the stuffing is heated through. IN RESPONSE THE THE REVIEW DATED NOV 20 2007 ---- I appreciate your FYI, however, I have been making my turkey just this way for over 40 years, and have yet to lose a family member or friend.
I have eaten it this way from "birth" since this recipe and method has been used by my mother and my grandmother before her.
