    Hi, TDN! Good to see you!

    fw, my great-grandmother (my dad's grandmother) was a wonderful lady. She stayed sharp till she died at 99 years and 11 months. When I was in college we were visiting her (she lived in Alabama and we in Georgia) and she understood what my major was--special education. She said, "Oh, handicapped children!" and we discussed it for a few minutes. Her picture was on the front page of the Montgomery newspaper when she died because she was the matriarch of a locally prominent family. She took my dad to church when he was a child and he owed his religious upbringing to her because his parents didn't attend church much. And oh, she could cook. She was known as "Sweetheart" by just about everyone. I have a couple of little notes she wrote me when I was a young girl and I cherish them.

    FW, a little egg (mixed in with the other liquid) in your stuffing will make it hold together in more of a loaf, and keep it from being really crumbly.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    That's what I was thinking it was for contrary,

    I also have a recipe from a precious old lady friend of mine who died in her 90's ......stuffing balls.....she made them every year for her family. I made them for my family once but honestly my family does not like change......not even the tiniest bit! I remember liking them.....basically the stuffing formed into balls.......might make them but prob will go with the crockpot or bake in oven.......

    After I posted that I thought I remembered hearing that some people also put chopped cooked egg into their stuffing. But I've never tried that. I suppose over the years people have tried everything in stuffing. And you like what your grandma made, which was probably what she had in the vegetable bin or pantry that week. I have heard of people that use crackers instead of bread crumbs. Or add white rice. I think those are recipes of necessity.

    I saw a recipe for sausage and cheese stuffing balls on Pinterest. That might be a good football game snack. And I saw one wrapped in bacon. Dh would probably eat that. I don't know that I would serve them at Thanksgiving, but might be a good party app. I like the idea of stuffing muffins, though, especially if I was serving buffet style.

    CH-oh yeah. Dmom put egg and cracker crumbs in burger as a stretcher/filler and the egg was the binder. Egg and I dont do well together so none for me.

    I absolutely never heard of stuffing balls. (don't you guys,just dont,ok) I read after I typed it.

    I feel like searching recipes.com or something for types of stuffing.

    The recipe I was talking about was for raw egg added with other liquids.

    I just looked but it appears in my decluttering I got rid of the church cook book my older friend had the stuffing ball recipe posted in.....but as I remember it was pretty basic with plenty of broth to hold everything together than made into bigger than golf ball but smaller than tennis ball size balls and just baked at maybe 350 degrees? Basic stuffing but individual serving sized......

    TDN-allrecipes.com had both a bacon and spinach balls one. Did you look at Stove Top Sage. Or do they are use chicken broth?? (referring to when you said you cant have it).

    So Kroger has their full size canned veg. 3/$1. so I got 11 cases and that 132 cans for $44.00. I took them all to the pantry but thats the last run before Thanksgiving. Mamas tired.

    My dressing recipe calls for baked cornbread, eggs,butter, broth, celery, onions, sage, pepper. The sage adds so much to it. My mom used a mixture of white bread and cornbread which is what my great-grandmother's recipe called for. The sage adds a savory flavor and with cranberry sauce, it's a sweet-and-savory thing. Oh yum. It's SO good. Mama also made giblet gravy with chopped hard-boiled eggs because Daddy liked it but I found it stomach-turning.

    I'm a little late to the party..lol..

    I grew up where my mom bought a bag of pepperidge farm seasoned bread cubes, sauteed onion & celery in a little butter after soft she would add the poultry seasoning, in another pot she would put all the turkey inners in water and boil until cooked..then mix the sauteed onion, celery in the flavored water then mixed the bread cubes, add salt,pepper some more poultry seasoning then mix in a egg and stuff the turkey.

    For years I made stove top stuffing..now I make my own dressing.

    I make my own homemade bread, cut it into cubes then bake it until crisp then after it's cool I put into a freezer bag weeks before I need it.

    I used my home canned chicken broth, homegrown herbs to make the poultry seasoning except the salt and pepper, sauteed the onion & celery (didn't grow these but did try but we were in drought so they just didn't grow well) I mixed it all together and baked it in a buttered casserole dish...It was the best dressing I've ever tasted in my life.

    I impressed myself..lol..

    Don't forget you can take that celery ( probably onion too ) and start base in water in the house then plant in dirt in house.

    We always called it stuffing growing up. With just me, hubs and the kid I'm the only one who likes it. Hubs... eh.. a little. If I were fixing it I'd just use Stove Top. I'm not a foodie so there's that. Easier the better. I remember the chicken broth, onions and beaten egg. Me, I'm like whoever said they like the crispy part. I like it dry versus moist. Think if I ever do make it again I'll try the muffin tin. Make a lot more crispies. Now I wish I had a little bit.
    Why do we only fix stuff like this once or twice a year? We like it... we just don't fix it. Makes nice leftovers/sides. Just a thought.
    It's like turkey. I don't buy a whole turkey. Only the breast but still lots of leftovers and easy but only a couple times a year. One year I fixed it several times on a weekend. It was cheap and cut down on cooking. I hate cooking.

    well nikko. I bought 12 boxes at .99 so i intend to make it more often now. If you used the egg in a muffin tin you could make a stuffin' muffin w/ bits of turkey thrown in?? Like a min breakfast casserole or better yet the sausage someone was talking about. Hmm? DH would love that.

    Hope to get out of the house and go for a drive. Have to see if dog is better.
