“I have used this recipe for over 30 years now (as did my mother)--and everyone loves it! An absolute requirement at our Thanksgiving Holiday table. Recipe makes enough for a 12-pound turkey, and is easily doubled. I have included the optional technique for making stuffing balls. Enjoy! Adapted from Betty Crocker. Note: see tip for freezing.”

  2. STUFFING BALLS: Shape stuffing by 1/2 cupfuls into balls; place in greased baking dish. Cover and cook in 325 degree F oven 30 minutes. Uncover and cook 15 minutes longer. 10 Stuffing Balls.
  3. NOTE: To make Corn Bread Stuffing, you can substitute corn bread cubes for the soft bread cubes.
  4. Tip for freezing for Thanksgiving/Christmas:.
  5. NOTE: The unbaked stuffing mixture will freeze great in containers or freezer bags to serve later. To reheat: Thaw and bake it in a greased dish, (rather than in the bird)at 350°F until golden brown on top (about 30 minutes covered, then uncover and bake for 15 minutes more). Don't overbake!
