Grandma’s Thanksgiving Dressing (Stuffing)

Our cute grandma is an amazing cook and this stuffing (dressing? I guess it would officially be dressing since we aren’t stuffing the bird with it!) is something that she would make every year for Thanksgiving. I didn’t know until recently that it wasn’t made completely from scratch (as many of her recipes are) and I was so surprised that she actually used a box of Stove-Top, but added all her favorite things to make it taste amazing!

This recipe is my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner! It’s simple and delicious!
