This is my mom's recipe. I was raised on stuffing (my parents are from up north but now live in the south), not dressing so if I want stuffing when I have a turkey I either have to go to my mom's house or I have to make it myself. My mom is not a recipe kind of person but I helped her make it (so I could learn) and wrote it down as we went. These are all appoximations since I tend to vary the amounts as I cook it just like she does in her cooking. One thing is for sure, it's delicious!!! Oh yeah, it makes enough for an army... I am not sure about the cooking time, it could be more, depending if you cook it in a turkey or less if not, for the most part everything is cooked except the vegetables. ENJOY!
