How to make it

  • In the South stuffing is referred to as "dressing." This recipe is the one used by my maternal grandmother, Evelyn Anthony. I have eaten and enjoyed it for almost 70 years.
  • This is enough stuffing for a 16 to 18 pound, turkey. So adjust for a baking chicken or capon, etc.
  • Cube and dry the breads in a 200°F oven.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet or pan and saute the vegetables until onion is softened. Stir in the poultry seasoning.
  • Mix vegetables with dried breads and toss to blend. Add the sage and toss again.
  • Add hot stock a cup at a time until stuffing is the consistency you want. Remember the bird will also add stock to the dressing.
  • Check the cavities of the poultry and blot dry with paper toweling.
  • Stuff the poultry just prior to roasting with hot stuffing. This helps the poultry to cook as well.
  • Extra stuffing may be baked in the oven at 350°F for 30 minutes. Add a little more stock to any stuffing being baked out of the bird.

    OMG... this is like the one I grew up on. If we had white "dressing", my Dad called it "Slime dressing." Only cornbread allowed at our house.. Still that way! Love it!

    I meant to add, in respect for your grandmother, Evelyn Anthony, "Bless her dear heart". Sharing and passing on of recipes from one generation to another, truly is a sacred and wonderful memorial.
