The great stuffing debate is on! My Grandma always made the best stuffing, but we called it dressing. From what I understand, they are virtually the same thing. One can be cooked in the bird and one can be cooked out, but you get pretty much the same result. Swanson wants to know whether you stuff the bird and what should the recipe include (veggies, fruits, nuts, etc..). Let them know what you think and get some awesome recipes there.
Every year before my Grandma passed away, she always made her Dressing for holidays. So, I obviously have to share. Not everyone is a fan of dressing/stuffing as I am one of them, but I adore my Grandma’s recipe.
My Grandma’s Ingredients and Directions for Dressing (remember- they never measured in my Granma’s era):
1 ½ loaf bread – let bread dry
Little ground parsley
½ stalk celery – ground
3 lg onions
Swanson canned broth
Salt & pepper
Bake 1 ½ hr at 350 degrees
Here’s a quick and easy recipe from Swanson that can be made in 15 minutes. Most of us are moms, after all, aren’t we? Who has time for gourmet meals each week?
