This is our favorite part of the holidays – my Mom’s dressing.  I don’t like turkey, but I LOVE my Mom’s dressing.  It is especially good smothered with gravy!

The original recipe came from my Dad’s Mom.  She was a great cook and made one of my other all-time favorite meals – Chicken Tetrazzini.  My Mom has perfected the dressing recipe over the years.   Chicken Legs can’t get enough of this at the holidays.  He especially likes it reheated at about 10:00 pm on Thanksgiving or Christmas night.  Chicken Legs swears this is the best dressing you’ll ever eat – I agree!

  1. Tom's here for Thanksgiving and we made the dressing, although we didn't cook it with the turkey. It was delicious! John and Tom are now playing Sports Illustrated football. A real old fashioned Thanksgiving. (Although I don't think Julia would have served champagne!)

  2. That looks wonderful! Just wondering if you seasoned the turkey with anything? We usually inject our turkey with Cajun seasoning but if I made it with the dressing in the pan would that ruin the flavor of the dressing you think?

  3. I'm so hungry for it right now I could just spit. Yummm
    My favorite of all is the dressing, gravy and cranberry sauce…If I never had another piece of turkey, I wouldn't care.
    This looks almost just like my recipe..lots of black pepper and plenty of stock…

  4. Hey that's a good idea doing the breast on top! And, of course, it looks and sounds amazing. Happy Thanksgiving!!

  5. We’ve been on the road without wi-fi access since Monday morning, so I’m behind in my blog reading. I'm with you guys and live for the dressing – your mom's recipe sounds and looks sooo good and I really like the idea of cooking it under the breast – especially since it's the part Bev wants. The dish below also looks outstanding and both went onto the try list.
