I have had this recipe for many years. It was a grand prize winner in a competition in Canadian Living magazine in the side dish category. It's delicious. I freeze it in shortening boxes, lined with wax paper. Then I can just take out one and slice it when I need it as a good accompaniment to chicken or pork chops.
- 6 potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 2 1/4 lb)
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 2 slices white bread
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon dried summer savory
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon dried sage
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes for about 20 minutes or until tender; drain and return potatoes to the pot.
- Add butter and mash well with a potato masher until smooth.
- Tear bread into small pieces; add to mashed potatoes, along with onion,sugars, savoury, molasses, sage, vinegar, salt and pepper.
- Mix well.
- Pack into a greased 9 X 5 inch loaf pan (or as I have stated above) Chill for several hours.
- (can be frozen at this point if desired) When ready to serve, melt some butter in a pan.
- Slice dressing and lightly brown on each side in the melted butter.
- (about 5 minutes each side).
