Grandma Laing’s Stuffing Recipe

By “Grandma Laing” I’m speaking of my grandmother, whose maiden name was Laing’s, great grandmother. So her father’s grandmother.      For a 20 lb bird

3 cups of chopped onion approximately 1/2 inch square pieces

5, 14 oz bags of common crackers ground to penny size

3 sticks of butter

3 quarts of milk

8 eggs

1 teaspoon pepper

6 tablespoons salt

6 tablespoons bells poultry seasoning

after you chop the onions & break up the common crackers, mix together.

Put butter & milk in a pan & heat on stove to scalding hot.

Mix salt, pepper & bells seasoning together in a small bowl and sprinkle over cracker & onion mix.

Break eggs one at a time into cracker mix and stir between each eggs addition.

once milk is hot & butter melted pour in 1/2 cup increments into the cracker mix until blended.

let cool (preferably overnight)before stuffing the bird. Or cook in a casserole with the turkey, if you like turkey neck meat it is also good to pack stuffing around the turkey neck and bake them together
