1 loaf bread
My mom and grandma used to save up the heels of bread for about a week or so before family dinners and used those instead of a loaf of “good” bread. We had a lot more people eating bread back in those days so it didn’t take long. Now it would take us a couple months to save up that many heels.
1 cup butter
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 ˝ cups boiling chicken or turkey broth.
Turkey giblets, or cut up cooked chicken or turkey cooked and chopped (optional I don’t like hearts and lungs so I just use a little chopped meat.)
At least 6 hours before you are ready to bake, toast the bread then tear each slice into bite-size pieces and let stand on an open table or countertop. You can speed up this part if you spread the bread out on cookie sheets and bake in a 200 degree oven for a while.
Once the bread has dried out, mix it in a large baking dish with the boiling broth, butter, onion, salt and sage. For added flavor, cook and chop up the turkey giblets and add to the stuffing.
Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 to 40 minutes in a covered dish. Uncover for final 10 minutes of bake time.
We always had to make oyster dressing for dad. It was pretty much the same recipe, just added chopped oysters.
