This is the stuffing recipe that my Great Grandma Hall used and it is still our family's favorite. It makes enough for a 12-pound turkey. Make sure and adjust it to the weight of your bird.
3/4 cup onion, minced
1 1/2 cups celery, chopped, with leaves
1 cup butter
9 cups bread, soft, cut into cubes
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons sage leaves, crushed
1 teaspoon thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Saute onion and celery in butter until tender.Stir in about 1/3 of the bread cubes. Turn into a deep bowl and add remaining ingredients. Toss well.Stuff turkey just before roasting. You can mix this together the night before and refrigerate until you are ready to stuff your bird on Thanksgiving day. You can also bake it in a casserole dish if you don't like in-the-bird stuffing.
