True Pilgrim Stuffing

Recipe by  

"I am a direct descendent of the Linells who came across on the Mayflower. Our family has always had the absolute most awesome stuffing, and I finally got the recipe handed down to me. It's so good I can't keep it a secret. Try it once and you'll agree it's the best you ever had, and it's so easy to make."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium-low heat, and cook and stir the celery and onion for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onion is translucent.
  3. In a separate skillet, cook and stir the ground beef and sausage over medium heat until the meat is browned and no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes. Drain the excess grease from the meat.
  4. Place the cubed white bread into the Dutch oven with the butter, celery, and onion, add the cooked meat, and lightly stir to mix well.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until evenly browned, about 1 hour.

Similar to my Grandmother's recipe that I have used for 30 years. Our version does not use Sausage and adds an egg to hold it all together. Ours also, does not use butter, because hamburger is enough fat. :) Can be baked outside of the turkey, just add a bit of broth. Simple, tasty. Add your own variations! Delish!

It was delicious. Make sure you have a big enough pot/dutch oven. If yours is too small, I'd STRONGLY suggest cutting back on the butter. BUt other than that, fantastic.

I am about to make this recipe for the third time. Each time I have made it I've been told by at least one person that it's the best stuffing they've ever had. My husband doesn't like to find the tiniest piece of onion in anything so I chop the onion into a puree before using. Everyone still gets all the flavor and my husband is a very happy man!!! Thanks for the great recipe. I will continue to use it for years to come!

I followed as directed. Has great flavor but very greasy/buttery.
