grandmoms stuffing.

This post from my cute friend Natalie! I love her.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
Three years ago my Grandmom came to Utah for Thanksgiving with my parents.
She taught me how to make her stuffing.
I am so glad she came out that year
because she passed away a little more than a year later.
I have her handwritten recipe in a safe place
and this year I'll be making stuffing in her memory.

Turkey Stuffing

1 large loaf white bread
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 C chopped celery
1/2 C chopped onion
Poultry Seasoning, to taste
1 chicken bouillon dissolved in 1 C hot water
1 pkg Jimmy Dean bulk sausage

Crumble and brown sausage. Drain on a paper towel. Add celery and onions to pan and saute in sausage drippings. Slightly dampen bread and pull apart into large bowl or pot. Halfway through loaf sprinkle some poultry seasoning. Continue with rest of loaf. Add egg, sausage, celery and onion mixture and additional seasoning. Mix together.

Pour 1/2 to 3/4 C of chicken broth over stuffing.

Cook on low in crock pot same time as turkey. If basting turkey, add small amounts of drippings each time you baste.

If cooking turkey in a bag, add 1/8 to 1/4 C drippings to stuffing at the end.

Remove from crock pot and serve.
