Our family's traditional stuffing recipe for the Thanksgiving turkey. Although I have strayed from time to time over the years, this is the stuffing recipe I always return to. All ingredient amounts are estimated; Mom has never measured and neither have I. Mom wants me to remind you to be careful with the amount of sage you use. Start off using a small amount of sage then adjust as needed. Please note that for safety reasons I do not place the stuffing into the cavity of the turkey, rather, I bake it separately. Finally and most importanly, *please avoid using commercially produced stock in this stuffing*. This is the stock recipe I use every time: Crock Pot Chicken or Turkey Stock And the bread recipe I've used the past several Thanksgivings: Classic White Bread (abm)
