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.
