    Tornado Ali's Note:

    When my grandmother passed away, I received a number of things from her estate. None were as important to me as her handwritten recipe for dressing. Not only is it the BEST dressing I've ever tasted, but it's also not too "sage"y...wonderful for those of us who don't adore sage. I add mushrooms and sometimes finely chopped oysters for personal preference. The shared secret recipe is written out on "General Shale Brick" notepaper, the company my grandfather worked for before he died.

      I know these reviews are a couple of years old and it's already 2010,but I had to share.
      I am so glad I came across this recipe. My mom passed down the exact same recipe to me years ago and I get nothing but raves about my stuffing. I truly believe the grease is the ultimate ingredient and gives it the best taste. I have also used chicken grease after frying up chicken and I think it turned out even better. I was curious,so I googled this to see if anyone uses grease in their stuffing. I tell everyone it has a "special ingredient" in it! LOL
      I remember years ago when she was teaching me how to make it,I had run out of broth and she said use some grease. I swear after that I add it every year now! So,if you have never tried it,try it! You won't be dissapointed!

      this is so easy and so good, taste just like homeade and got great reviews. This will replace my homeade dressing that takes hrs to make and tastes even better.

      We liked this, although it was rather dry after 45 minutes in the oven. Mixing in a little broth or water brings it right back to life. I would have never thought to add bacon grease to stuffing, but it adds a nice flavor.
