“I got this recipe years ago from the ladies at St Mary's Catholic Church in Barnesville, MD. We were cooking turkeys for a community Thanksgiving dinner and they wanted a consistent tasting dressing. The only change I have made to it is to add the 3 whole eggs. The recipe is for a 20-25 pound turkey, but if you make one third of the recipe, it makes more than enough for a 12-15 pound bird. You'll never use another recipe after this one. I've also baked it outside the bird in a greased casserole at 350 degrees for about 1-1 1/2 hours. Depending on how moist you like your stuffing, I often add 2- 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth to the bread - but this was not in the original recipe.”
