Grandma Vesta's Dressing

1 medium Onion -- chopped
1/2 pound Sausage
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine
2 cups Celery -- sliced thin
3 Eggs -- beaten
1 cup Carrot -- shredded
1 tablespoon Poultry Seasoning
Salt & Pepper -- to taste
12 cups Day Old Bread -- cubed

Several days before you need to make your dressing, cube or break up about 12 cups of
day old bread. Store, loosely covered so partial drying will take place during storage.

De-fat sausage by cooking in a sieved double boiler over low heat until all sausage is
cooked and fat has dripped into hot water below. Set aside to cool.

In a very large container, toss dried bread with vegetables and poultry seasoning. Mix
melted butter and eggs, then sprinkle over bread/vegetable mixture and mix well. If
dressing is too dry, sprinkle with milk until it feels the right consistency. (Please note that
the dressing will become moister during the baking process). Finally, add the sausage and
mix well.

Stuff turkey just prior to baking, or cook stuffing in a crockpot for approximately 3-1/2 hours
on low.
