Tammy’s Homemade Dressing - The Old Schoolhouse


Tammy’s Homemade Dressing


I don’t know about your family, but in our house the favorite part of the turkey dinner is the dressing. Everyone gets excited when they learn that the dressing will be included in the yummy meal. It is a tradition that we look forward to.

There are many different ways to make dressing, and each family has their own unique style or recipe that they use. A lot of times these recipes get passed on from generation to generation.

In our house, this is the first generation of the recipe, but I am trusting that it will be passed down in the family. As my children love the taste of ‘Mom’s dressing’ that is easy to make, I figured I would share it here.
