I am on the high seas, specifically in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but hate to miss Saturday Night Genealogy Fun. Since it is Thanksgiving weekend, I am going to make a stab in the dark and guess (hope) that Randy has picked a Thanksgiving-themed topic and share my grandmother’s most delicious stuffing recipe that my mom also made.
It’s easy to make:
1 loaf bread, thin sliced, stale and toasted
1 T. poultry seasoning
1 medium potato, boiled
1/2 lb. butter or margarine
1 medium onion
Salt and pepper, to your taste
Grate bread into crumbs. Use potato masher and pour a little hot water over the crumbs to moisten them. (Mom always said not to make the bread lumpy with water!) Mash the potato. Add eggs, chopped onion, butter or margarine and season to taste. Mix well.
Now, there are three tips to add here. First, white Wonderbread was the bread of choice in this recipe. Second, I don’t like chunks of onion in my food, so I use onion powder in place of the onion. (NOT onion salt!)
However, Mom and Grandmother always said the secret to the stuffing being so tasty was the poultry seasoning. It HAD to be Bell’s Seasoning, which used to be sold in every grocery store. I buy it on that big website we all know.
Although Thanksgiving is over, the holidays have just begun. It’s my turn to host Christmas dinner for the family and Grandmother’s stuffing will be on the table.
