Granny's stuffing

    Enjoyed by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike, this tasty stuffing benefits from the addition of mashed potatoes to achieve a delightfully creamy and substantial result which can be used to stuff your Christmas turkey, or it can be cooked in it's own dish.

    Serves: 16 

    • 7 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
    • 220g butter, melted and divided
    • 2 (450g) loaves white bread, torn into pieces
    • 1 1/2 medium onions, chopped
    • 5 tablespoons dried summer savory
    • salt and pepper, to taste

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan, and fill with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to the boil, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, mash with 50g butter, and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together the bread, onions, savory, salt and pepper. Stir in the mashed potatoes, while drizzling in the remaining butter. Stuff turkey just before roasting. Place any leftover stuffing in a bowl in the fridge for later.

    This is the best stuffing I've ever tasted. Next time will try replacing 3/4c. butter with chicken stock.  -  23 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This stuffing was satisfactory. After peeling/chopping all the potatoes, boiling them, and all the additional steps, it took me over an hour to make. The summer savory spice was GREAT--I add it to everything now! If you are going to cook this on the side, make sure you cook it as long as the meat. I think next time, I'll cut down on the onions and use meat stock instead of butter.  -  28 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husbands grandmother was from Montegue PEI and made the same dressing. We have it 2-3 times a year and everyone loves it. I add a lot of celery to this and save my bread heals all year in the freezer to make this. My family adores this! I would love to be in contact with the person who put this recipe online. I give it 4 stars!  -  18 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
