I’m Over at Sally Cronin’s blog today with a Thanksgiving recipe, just in time for Canadian Thanksgiving!


Cook from Scratch 2017 – Holiday Stuffing (D.G. Kaye Style)

Sally’s call for our favorite cook from scratch recipes comes just in time for me as we Canadians celebrate our Thanksgiving Monday, October 9th this year.

I’ve used this recipe for decades, only I’ve altered it through the years to accommodate my gluten-free diet. And it still gets rave reviews. This was my beautiful Aunty Sherry’s recipe. She wasn’t known for her gourmet cooking skills, but often made up recipes on the spot that just stuck around. I’ve also seemed to inherit that wonderful skill from her, lol.

This stuffing recipe originally was invented for her Stuffed Pork Chop recipe which became a favorite of mine and my siblings when we were kids, and its versatility transformed it into a Turkey Stuffing recipe that I’ve used ever since – with a few tweaks.

Because neither my aunt, nor I were ever big on measuring ingredients (mad chefs!), measurements will be approximated. My aunt introduced me to the ‘taste as you go’ method, which is pretty much how I roll in the kitchen, yet my husband and my guests love my cooking. Just don’t ask me how much of what I put in because it’s magical. I do make some of my favorite dishes frequently, but as you may well imagine, some days the product comes out tasting different from the last time I made it.

As you can see, I’ll never make it to Masterchef on TV, but I promise, this stuffing is a great go to, and it’s delish! Continue reading over at Sal’s . . .

  1. Hi Debby – this sounds delicious … and I do love a really good stuffing and all the (for us) Christmas get togethers helping out making food etc … and it’s not far away for you Canadians is it – cheers Hilary


    1. Hi Hilary. Thanks for dropping by. It doesn’t get easier than this for good stuffing. And feel free to add whatever else you like to the recipe. I don’t like other things mixed in my food, but I know there are plenty of things that can be added. Maybe chestnuts? 🙂


  2. Debby, you really did time this post right, what with Canadian Thanksgiving right around the corner 🙂 Thanks! I love how you call yourself a “mad chef” as you don’t measure anything. I’m always measuring as I’m quite basic in terms of my cooking repertoire. The recipe sounds delicious!


  3. No turkeys in my world means no stuffing unless, as I experimented with many years ago, I stuffed a winter squash. It was never a big hit with my family. We stuck with Italian favorites for holidays. Tomato sauce and pasta in any form at all made my crew smile.
