I have used this recipe every year since 1973. It is not only my personal favorite, handed down to me by my mother, it is also the favorite of my husband and our three children. My two oldest are now on their own and this was the first recipe they asked for.

It makes enough stuffing for an 8-10 lbs. turkey. Enjoy!!
