My Grandma, and the co-founder of LGCM, Rita Leahy grew up during the Great Depression on a farm in Mauston, WI. She learned how to cook on the farm and had lots of great old-school recipes. One of my favorites was her traditional stuffing that she served on Thanksgiving. Much of my family preferred boxed stuffing, but I always loved her homemade stuffing. Here’s her recipe that I’ll start making to remember her. We hope you enjoy it too!
