Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving. I am spending mine with my family and we are doing all our traditional cooking and more importantly, eating! One of our family's specialties is the way we prepare our dressing. Instead of stuffing the turkey, which I think makes it a mushy mess, or baking a big dish of dressing, where only the corners are nice and crispy, we make individual servings ... what we call "dressing balls". It is my responsibility to mush everything up with my hands and scoop them onto cookie sheets. Not only are they perfectly crispy all around they are also perfect to reheat for all the great post Thanksgiving leftover meals.

I give you, the Badaracco/Stubblefield Dressing Balls™ ...

Dried bread, cornbread, sage, etc. dressing.
