Grandma’s Best Dressing Recipe

Spread the love

Thanksgiving is coming and one of the staples on our table every year is the dressing or stuffing. The dressing recipe is one my husband brought into our marriage from his grandma. It’s absolutely delicious and a must try.

This stuffing recipe is one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving since I married my husband. I’ve never had stuffing (dressing) quite like it before. We do not cook it in the turkey but that can be done. Just pay attention to temperature recommendations to make sure the stuffing and turkey are cooked thoroughly.

What you need:

  • 2 large loaves bread
  • 8 small or 4 medium potatoes
  • 1 lb Jimmy Dean mild sausage (we like to use maple sausage for extra flavor)
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 package mushrooms
  • 6 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp poultry seasoningDressing Recipe
  1. Peel potatoes and cook ready to mash
  2. Break up bread in small pieces into large pan (we leave out the bread overnight to stale) This last time making the recipe we used artisan bread it was a delicious option as well.
  3. Chop up onions and celery into small pieces and sprinkle over bread
  4. Cut up mushrooms, sprinkle over bread
  5. Sprinkle poultry seasoning over it all
  6. Once potatoes are soft, put a cube of imperial margarine into potatoes. Mix good, then cut in the sausage in with potatoes.
  7. Mix potato mixture into bread mix.
  8. Knead all together.
  9. Put mixture into large pan.
  10. Cook for 60 minutes at 350 degrees.
