**This is the recipe that my Mom has used for over 40 years. Tastes great every time!!
***This recipe makes enough to stuff a 20 to 22 pound bird.
3/4 cup minced onion
1 cup butter (4 sticks) (real salted butter is best), really really soft
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
9 cups bread cubes
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp sage
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
We added 1/2 roll cooked Jimmy Dean Original Sausage for a little spice.
This makes A LOT!! Use your largest bowl or a big stock pot. You're going to mix this with your hands.
Put all the ingredients into the bowl/stock pot. Add the softened butter and use your hands to mix it all together. Make sure that EVERYTHING is coated with butter.
If you have leftover stuffing after you stuff your bird put remaining stuffing in a casserole dish and refrigerate until about an hour before your turkey is done. Cook leftover stuffing for 1 hour at the current oven temp.
