Made with a perfect blend of savory pork, aromatic spices, and herbs, this stuffing transforms any holiday meal into a culinary delight. It’s a time-honored favorite that brings generations together around the table at Thanksgiving and Christmas-time.

2 pounds pork butt or blade
1 medium onion
2-3 large potatoes
1/4 to 1/2 package Pepperidge Farm seasoned bread mix
salt and pepper to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground sage, to taste
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground poultry seasoning, to taste
  1. In an electric or hand grinder, add large chunks of raw cut pork. 
  2. Dice onion into small pieces and add to ground pork. Cover with water. Add salt and pepper, poultry seasoning, and sage. Cook until water is evaporated. 
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, cook potato chunks until tender—drain and mash, set aside to cool. 
  4. When water has almost completely evaporated, add mashed potatoes and seasoned bread. 
  5. Mix until almost completely dry. (Will become moist upon standing). Taste for flavor. 
  6. If stuffing is too dry after standing, add chicken or turkey broth until moistened.
