I didn't know my great grand mother. She passed away a year before I was born. I know about her stuffing recipe because it's the one my mother used the entire time I was growing up. I learned how to make the stuffing helping my mom put everything together for many years on Thanksgiving morning. I'm sharing the recipe without exact measurements because mom and I put it together every year just by sight and smell. We knew when the stuffing had just the right texture and flavor to go inside the turkey.
Here's what you will need:
6 good sized fresh Kaiser Rolls cut into cubes
1 pound of bacon
3 or 4 eggs
1 stalk of celery
1 large or two small onions
Here's what you do:
Fry the bacon and save some of the grease
3 or 4 stalks of celery into little pieces
Chop the onions into small pieces
Blend all the ingredients in a large bowl. The eggs and the cubed rolls first. Then the rest. Add some bacon grease at the end. The stuffing should hold together on it's own but it should not be mushy. If it's still a little dry add water or another egg.
Then put it inside the turkey. In a few hours enjoy!
