Ingredients:  
5 loaves of white bread
4 large onions
1/2 pound butter
2 to 3 cups of boiling water
Dried rubbed sage

Directions:
Directions:
Cut crust off bread and discard crusts (or feed the birds!), then tear bread into large bite size pieces. Place into a very large bowl.

Peel and chop onions into small pieces. Place butter into a frying pan and melt. Add chopped onions. Fry until golden brown.

While onions are frying, boil or microwave water to boiling point.

Pour finished onions & butter over bread. Add about 2 cups of the boiling water and then start adding sage to taste. (I usually start with 1/4 of a regular size jar of sage, then after stirring, taste & add more if needed. You should be able to taste the sage, but it should not be overpowering, so taste before you add more.)

Stir all together until bread is thoroughly moist, but not soaking wet. It should all stick together. Add more water if needed.

You will have dressing left over after stuffing your turkey. Put extra stuffing in greased loaf pan, cover with foil and bake along side the turkey the last 1 & 1/2 hour. Remove foil for the last 1/2 hour of baking.

Personal Notes:
Never stuff turkey until ready to put into oven.

This should be enough to stuff a 20-25 pound turkey and serve 12 people. I have used 8 loaves of bread and 6/7 onions if I want lots of leftovers or have more to feed.
