This is one of the many recipes from my grandmothers cookbook. She passed away in May of 2005 and I am recording her wonderful recipes for my family and the many generations that will follow. I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as we do. I have not made each one yet-so cooking time and servings may vary. Blessings from FOURMRANCHWIFE in Texas. (THIS IS ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITES!!)

Awesome tasting fish with a delicious stuffing that I would be proud to serve to company, and will next time I have some! DH and I really loved it!
More like 10 stars. This was a very nice restaurant quality meal. Looks fancy but really easy and quick. I could not get whole flounder so I had to use filets but they worked just fine. I simply made a mound of the dressing and tucked the ends of the fillet under the mound. I did put the broiler on for a few minutes to help brown the top of the fillets bc I was antzy and wanted to eat it NOW! It smelled amazing and tasted even better. Great recipe Stacey and Nanny!
