Ingredients:  
Turkey Dressing:

For a small turkey:
1 pkg. unseasoned dry bread cubes
lb. melted butter
1/4 cup hot water
1 small onion, finely diced

For a big turkey:
2 pkgs bread cubes
lb. butter
cup hot water
1 large onion, diced
Salt, pepper, celery salt, garlic salt (optional)

Turkey gravy:

Water or canned chicken broth to add to the juice in the pan. (You want to have 2 or 3 cups liquid total.) If you have plenty of juice without adding anything, consider yourself lucky.

1/4 to 1/3 cup flour
Salt and pepper

For turkey dressing:
Mix dressing ingredients together. Mix in a few shakes each of plain salt, garlic salt, celery salt, and pepper.

If you have too much dressing to fit into the turkey, you can put it into a covered casserole or even wrap it snugly in tinfoil and put it in the oven for the last hour of turkey baking. (You can put a little juice on it from the turkey pan if you like.)
Roast the turkey according to instructions on the wrapping. Be sure you stuff the turkey right before baking, and take all the stuffing out of the turkey when you serve the meal. Stuffing that sits inside the turkey can go bad.

Turkey gravy:
Strain the turkey juice from the roasting pan into a saucepan. Skim off the fat. Add water or canned chicken broth (if necessary) to make 2 or 3 cups liquid. Heat gently. While the juice is heating, make your gravy thickening: For each cupful of juice to be thickened, mix 1 tablespoons flour with 3 tablespoons cold water until there are no lumps. Stir gradually into hot liquid. Cook until thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Personal Notes:
Grandma Fern got the dressing recipe at the Far West Turkey Show in 1948. We've been using it since then.
