I know a lot of people treasure their mom's Thanksgiving stuffing recipe. I think we tend to stick with what we grew up with.
When I was a kid, my mother started on Thanksgiving dinner very early in the day. We usually ate early in the day around 2. My husband still thinks that's crazy. Maybe it's the southern way?
While Mom was cooking, my brother and I would watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I have such fond memories of those days!
My grandmother would visit, and it was such a celebration. Now that we live in Florida, I haven't had Thanksgiving with my family in four years. Even spending it in Costa Rica, though fun, was just not as good.
Updated: I lost my mom this year and it is so hard. I'm grateful for the recipes, like this one, that will always bring a little of her to our dinner table.

This seems like a lot of onion and celery.
You can certainly reduce the amount if you like less, or add more biscuits, Jai. Remember, onions cook down to so little in comparison to what you start with. As you are combining the onions and celery to the biscuits, just add to taste. You will know when you have enough for your preference. And it is SO good the next day, so be sure to make enough for leftovers!
That's the first time I've seen biscuts in a stuffing recipe... Moms always have the best recipes!
Thanks for stopping in for my SITS day! Happy Thanksgiving!
I've never used biscuits in dressing but this sounds great!!!
You are going to love it, Arlene! Please let me know how it turns out!
