Grandma’s Thanksgiving Stuffing

Grandma’s Thanksgiving Stuffing

Whenever I think of Thanksgiving I think of my Grandma’s Thanksgiving Stuffing. It was the best stuffing I have ever tasted. It was made from scratch and that is why it was so delicious. I have made it so many times through the years.Stuffing is one of the best parts of Thanksgiving. It is easy to make and I love how it always takes me back to my childhood!

As the turkey and stuffing are baking your house will smell like Thanksgivings you remember through the years…comfy, warm and happy.This stuffing recipe has been my family’s favorite Thanksgiving side dish forever! 

Ever wonder what the difference between dressing and stuffing is? It is the way that it is cooked. Dressing is cooked in a separate dish while stuffing is stuffed into the turkey to cook.


Dry Bread




Poultry Seasoning

Thyme and Sage

Salt and Pepper

Chicken Stock

How much stuffing do you make for a big family? Use 1 cup for a normal meal or about 1 ½ cups per person for Thanksgiving. This recipe will feed about 15 people for a regular meal, or 10 people for Thanksgiving.

I will always remember my grandma in her little kitchen making this stuffing, I hope you enjoy this recipe! This is the BEST stuffing recipe ever hope you enjoy it!

Happy Thanksgiving!
