My Grandma's Stuffing

By PutoPinoy on Monday, August 31, 2009 At Monday, August 31, 2009

Stuffs 1 large turkey...reduce ingredients as needed.
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped celery
  • 1 c. chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 c. chopped onions
  • 1 lg. box low salt Ritz crackers
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. sage
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 1/2 c. butter

Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet. Over medium heat saute celery and onions until onions are clear, add mushrooms and herbs. Crush the Ritz crackers in a large bowl (I use a rolling pin and a zip-lock plastic bag). Add the sauteed vegetables and herbs. Add a little stock or water to moisten slightly.

Remember, it will expand when baking. Stuff your bird, putting excess in a casserole to bake. If it turns out as good as my Grandma's, you better have enough for seconds. P.S. Creativity is encouraged, but be sure to use the basic ingredients.
