After a few years, my oldest daughter wanted the recipe of Grandpa's dressing. He told us he had no recipe. He said he had it in his head and used a little of this and a little of that. So as Grandpa Ledford made the dressing, my daughter wrote down what he put in it. Roy Sr. has been in heaven now for 15 years. We have enjoyed eating Grandpa's dressing every holiday meal.
My honey has his plate filled and will be heading to his chair to indulge.
Now my plate is full. See my old refurbished 50's stove. I just love this stove. This is the first time I cooked a turkey in it. I usually made all the extras when with family. It cooked my turkey beautifully.
ROY LEDFORD SR'S STUFFING
2 bags of Seasoned Stuffing Cubes
4 stalks of celery, diced
4 large carrots, diced
1 granny smith apple, diced
1 red apple, diced
1 cup black raisins
1 (15 oz) can black olives drained and sliced
6 eggs, slightly beaten
giblets or turkey leg or thigh cooked and diced
1 large purple onion
salt and pepper to taste
poultry seasoning if you prefer more
Broth from cooked giblets and turkey parts to moisten.
Prepare the vegetables and fruit. Pour in very oversized bowl. Add all the rest of the ingredients and stir. Add enough of the broth to moisten but not make soggy. Stuff your turkey. If you prefer you can put in pans and bake at 350 degrees till cooked through. If baking you may want to add more broth so that the dressing is not too dry. ENJOY
Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving Day
