Hands down, my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is the stuffing! Every year since I can remember, our family has always made the same stuffing recipe. When I was a little kid, I remember my grandma pulling her big, hand-cranked grinder out from the cabinet to make this stuffing. It clamped onto the edge of the kitchen counter and she would let us crank the handle as it chopped up the onions and celery. Free child labor, right? haha!
My nana passed away over 10 years ago now but I love being able to make her recipes at the holidays. It makes me feel as if a small part of her still lives on. In the South, the kitchen is the heart of the family. It is where recipes and traditions are passed down. It is where families blend and grow, and I can’t wait to start teaching my own daughter how to make my nana’s recipes.
This stuffing recipe is so good and will be the hit of your thanksgiving dinner! I hope you love it as much as I do and feel as if your family is right there in the kitchen making it alongside you, just as I do every time I make it!
