When I left home I copied out my favorite recipes from my mother’s card file. These recipes were limited to what she could fit onto a 3×5 card. They were meant more to remind her how to make a dish, rather than to instruct someone else on how to make them. They were sometimes quite cryptic to the uninitiated. The Thanksgiving stuffing I make today is a direct descendant of Claudia’s dressing.
Note: This is presented exactly as it was written on the card.
[Claudia’s] Poultry Dressing

½ tsp salt
1 tsp dry poultry seasoning
1 finely chopped onion
