I have made this stuffing for my family for over 40 years. Some minor variations: cook onions and celery in butter first. The aroma of that alone sets the tone for the whole holiday. I start cooking at 6am and everyone is up to enjoy the smells emanating from the kitchen. I use dried bread (Not a seasoned store-bought mix), and at least 4 eggs or more depending on the recipe size. Sage and poultry seasoning. Boiling the turkey wings and any other removed parts for broth, supplemented with store bought again depending on recipe size. Mix in a giant mixing bowl until the moisture consistency you like. Less than half will fit inside a 14 or 15 pound bird, so cook two. save enough stuffing to fill a 9 inch pie plate for the "Stuffing quality samplers" to enjoy while the bird(s) cook.

I have made this for the last two years and everytime someone asks me for the recipe. Needless to say there are no leftovers. I have added the poultry seasoning with dries cranberries in one version and sausage in a second version. They are both delicious! With the base recipe, even without additions, it's a definite winner!

My mother also added two eggs to her stuffing. I think it helps to bind everything together.
