Now in that time I've always been asked fer this here recipe by folks who tatsted it fer the first time...and always been glad t'give it to here's my Holiday Gift to Y'all....

Well mam...we got us a pretty large family...and this here great tastin recipe is in large quantities ( will stuff a 23-25 pound bird) y'all might just have to "downsize" the bread to 2 loaves, celery to 5 or 6, and onions a might to meet yur own family's needs...but trust'll be well worth yur time...yes sir...well worth it...

A Perfect Scratch Stuffing Recipe’

3 Loafs Bread
7 stalks of Celery-chopped
3 large onions-chopped
3 full sticks of Butter
3 cans of Campbell’s Cream of Chicken Soup
3 cans of Campbell’s Cream of Celery Soup
Bell’s Seasonings.

Three days before making the stuffing, spread all the bread slices out on trays to become completely dry. This is important as it adds to the fine flavor....and the dried bread completely soakes up all the flavors.

On the day you are going to make the stuffing, cut the bread slices into cubes…or break apart into a very large bowl…whichever you find easier.

Melt all the butter in a large skillet and saute’ the chopped onions and celery until tender. Pour the entire mixture over and into the bread cubes and mix.

Next, mix all the soups into the bread mixture…mix well.

Add the Bell’s Seasoning to your taste.

OPTIONAL: If you want…you can also fry up some pan sausage, drain well and add to the mixture.

Stuff your turkey properly with stuffing mixture and cook as usual. Take any remaining stuffing mix and place into a baking dish. This can be baked later at 350 degree’s for about 30 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
