Herb seasoned crispy turkey dressing is all about fluffy and the crunchy. It's not stuffed in the bird. Dressing mounds are individual.

Good Turkey Dressing

I don't know why I've taken so long to post this vintage-inspired recipe of my Mom's, herb seasoned crispy dressing balls. It's an adaptation of her delicious recipe for dressing balls! Growing up in West Virginia, this was truly a Thanksgiving and Christmas treat that all of us looked forward to.

Making these herb seasoned balls even more tasty was gravy, and Mom's was creamy, thick, turkey infused because of the drippings and full of chopped giblets and livers. We kids would devour the dressing and gravy!

Mom didn't have the Pepperidge Farm products that make this recipe even a little more simple. No, she did it all from stale bread and dried herbs. But, always the broth and stock of the baked turkey and also from the boiling of the gizzards and livers.

Turkey and Dressing

Mom never stuffed the dressing in the turkey. We always had these individual crispy herb crusted and buttery mounds of bread that were just phenomenal. I love so much about the individual serving sizes.

They're golden brown and crispy on the outside. It's like brownie corners or a muffin top, you get the crunchy stuff! And, then the insides are as moist as a dew covered rain forest. I mean you can't even explain how tasty these herb seasoned crispy dressing balls are!

Difference between Dressing and Stuffing

Basically the difference between dressing and stuffing is in how they're cooked. Stuffing means just what it says, 'to stuff' and that's what you do. You stuff the bird with the seasoned mixture. Dressing is another bird. It's cooked outside the turkey!

How to Make the Best Turkey Dressing

Topping them off, of course, is the creamy lusciousness of butter that melts and oozes into the insides of that dressing ball making it almost like a hot baked yeast roll or hot yeast donut. Yep, it's gonna melt in your mouth! Hope you try them!

Food brings back so many memories of growing up, and these herb seasoned crispy dressing balls illuminate some of the best time of my life! xoxo ~ally
