Grandmama’s Stuffing

My Nana wasn’t the best cook. She used packets for gravy, boxes for potatoes, stuffing, and canned soup. She fed her family on a shoestring though; and it was a different time in the world.

This recipe is one I stumbled upon years and years ago. Since we went NAG free, I’ve modified it to be safe, but it’s still as delicious as the first time I had it at a USAF squadron function years ago.

Grandmama's Stuffing

A traditional Bread Stuffing that makes enough stuffing for an 18 pound turkey. But don't feel like you have to just use it for that; it bakes up in the oven just wonderfully as well.
