As I came home with stuffing from the grocery store last night, DH informed me that he wanted to make home made stuffing this year instead. {head -> wall}

I don't have a recipe per se, my dad always used rye bread & breakfast sausage & red wine in his, so that is what I usually do, along with the usual celery, onions & seasonings. Sometimes I put apples in it, too, or chestnuts...

I was really suprised years ago when I found out that people put odd stuff in their dressing.....like nuts and berries but one that grosses me out was oysters....lol.... after watching the cook shows I am sure some of them put hot pepper flakes in their...

Our dressing is very plain

We have put oysters in ours a few times, it is good, if you like oysters. I might check with DH & see if he wants to do that this year. I had a friend years ago, who did a low-fat southwestern cornbread dressing with jalapeños. It was okay, but it wasn't Thanksgiving to me.
DH puts giblets in the gravy sometimes, but I won't allow them in the stuffing! I don't do "guts", I'm not much of a gravy eater, so I don't care if he puts them in the gravy, 'cuz I can just pass on the gravy.

My best basic involves stashing stale bread in the freezer.

That is the closest recipe to my mom's dressing that I've ever seen.

I myself do it simple
I like wheat and white - Bread that is dried and broken into pieces
I cut up onion and celery and some tops of the celery
stir fry it a little then add it to the bread
I sprinkle in some poultry seasoning and pepper
I add a egg or 2 depending on how much I am making
I then add chicken broth to this to make it up..

* I myself do add it to the turkey or chicken I am doing up
this year I am going to put it in a bag that goes into the turkey and pull
it out when its done..

* the secret I have is when the dressing or stuffing smells just right
with the seasonings I use its right to stuff..

Some put it in a pan and bake it alone..
I bake mine...

I make mine a day before and leave it in the bag in the refrigerator and when I ready to do it in the oven I do it up..
Homemade dressing is delicious compared to store stuff...

Jaielyn, DH was saying that his aunt used to make her stuffing with sausage too. He's going to call and see if he can get her recipe. He really loved it. Not sure if it used wine but that sounds good.

You can make this ahead of time, and stuff the turkey whenever you need to, or pat into a pan and bake at 350 until a little crusty around the edges.
