Mom's Stuffing Recipe

I think we all grow up with certain smells that triggers fond memories from our childhood.

This stuffing is one that does it for me. We could me anywhere in the house and when our eyes would start to water we knew Mom was making her fabulous Stuffing! Those strong home grown onions!

We always had it for the Holidays - Thanksgiving and Christmas. We always had a Ham and a large Turkey. Why both? My Dad's family raised Turkeys when he was young - he'd only eat Ham, guess he'd had enough Turkey growing up.

My Sister has the Thanksgiving Holiday now, or should I say prior to the Pandemic.

She always has the same menu as Mom did. Whenever I was out of state I also made the same. The tradition carries on. My children look forward to that same menu each year now. I only hope they carry it on long after I'm gone.

I'll make it again for Christmas and can't wait for those aromas to carry me back to my childhood.

    Obviously, I'm not a seasoned cook but could you please tell me how to grind an onion. Your recipe sounds delicious and plan on having it soon even though the season has passed

    • I have a Food Chopper. It has a blade on the bottom, similar to a blender, I pulse until I get to the right texture - ground. It's my favorite appliance. I use it for everything. Mom used to use a hand grinder with a disc. If you have a food processor you should be able to use that. I don't have one, so not familiar with what they can do

    Optional. My wife had been making this stuffing for over fifty years. Sometimes she adds finely chopped apple and apple cider.
