I serve this as a side dish rather than stuffing a bird. This has been revised from oral recipes handed down from both my mother and my mother-in-law. A MUST for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Ingredients

22 slice
dried bread, torn in pieces (about 1 large loaf)
1 c
celery, diced
1/2 small
onion, diced
1 can(s)
(14-1/2 oz.) chicken broth
2 tsp
sage, dried (may add more if desired)
2
eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
water from cooking celery & onions

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Set bread out to dry overnight on a cookie sheet. Tear in bite-size pieces just before making dressing.
2
Cook celery and onions in small amount (at least 1 cup) water about 20 minutes or until tender. Save water.
3
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together, including cooking water if needed to moisten.
4
Spoon dressing into a 9x13-in. baking pan and bake uncovered in a 350-degree oven about 40 minutes, until golden brown on top.

This is almost exactly the way I was taught to do this growing up. The only difference was Gramma taught me to boil the turkey neck (keep adding water as it reduces) to create the broth. Other than that...exact! Great dressing.
