Well, it's that time of year again and every family has a traditional recipe for turkey dressing.  This a recipe my dad left knowing eventually we would find it after he was gone.

I'll preface this with, my dad was quite the joker. He never said much, but when he did, it was either very profound or very funny. Miss him every day.

After my dad passed in 2006, we were going through his box of his secret recipes. I'm sure he put this one in there just to get us after he was gone. My dad was a very good cook and kept his secret recipes in a wooden box. I came across a recipe for "Popcorn Dressing".  I was curious, thinking this could be interesting


This is my dad's recipe for Popcorn Dressing: Read to the end

3/4 cup butter
2 large celery stalks, chopped SAVE $
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup) SAVE $
9 cups soft bread cubes (15 slices)
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground sage

4 Place turkey in oven and cook for about 3 and a half hours or until the popcorn blows the ass out of the turkey.
