Southern Tradition. My grandmother makes this every Christmas and Thanksgiving. Please note that my grandmother cooks by "eye" and taste, so you may need to adjust ingredients, i.e. more or less stock, bisquits, etc. The dressing should be moist but not runny before cooking. 11/27/09 Please NOTE my above message...if you are not comfortable cooking by approximations then do NOT try this recipe. I have written this by watching my grandmother and measurements are indeed different everytime. This was recorded so that I can continue the tradition into the future when she is no longer able to make this for us.
