This is the recipe my mother and grandmother always used. Instead of dicing the onions though, we always have sliced them. It is always baked in a pan. Other than that, a bit of salt and pepper to taste and that’s it otherwise it is a different recipe altogether. Holidays aren’t the same without this traditional dressing and it’s fabulous on leftover turkey sandwiches! My mom is 91 now and isn’t great at remembering exact amounts anymore for recipes in her head so thanks for this!!
This is the stuffing my family has used for years minus the sage. We use lots of fresh chopped onion (no parboil), soft bread that has been torn and let dry out for a day or so, butter ( we probably use more than 2oz), salt & pepper. That's it. I know it sounds weird but this absorbs the flavor of the turkey and is fantastic. We've had to modify amounts as we now do two turkeys for nearly 50 people.

I'm a full-time student at a University of Wisconsin campus, with a double major in Sociology and History. I have three adorable children, ages 9 yrs, 5 yrs, and our 2 yr old son. My nine yr old is in third grade. My 5 yr old is is in kindergarten. My littlest one is pleasantly plump. ;) We also have 2 cats. My daughter recently joined recipezaar under the name Miss Bean I also really like sewing. I make @ 1/3 of my daughters clothes. Reading is also a BIG staple in my life. One of my favorite ways to find a book is to walk into the library, pick a shelf and simply grab a book at random. I've read so many great books I probably wouldn't have found out any other way. I also like to camp and fish with my DH. He eats, sleeps and breathes fishing. He would like to one day start his own company, he hand ties and sells fishing lures locally. And he loves my cooking and will try anything at least once. ;) He works as a pressman at a local printing company. <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v426/mangomama/animations/?action=view¤t=neil_patrick_Harris.gif" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v426/mangomama/animations/neil_patrick_Harris.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
