Thanksgiving Dressing

I grew up in Canada and our Thanksgiving Day is in October.  It is the second Monday in October which coincides with Columbus Day in America.   We had our Thanksgiving meal on the Sunday and it was not too different to our Christmas meal.

I grew up on a farm and so pretty much everything was from the farm.  We had a farm-raised chicken for Thanksgiving dinner, potatoes, carrots, turnip, squash, and dressing.

Dressing is basically mashed potato with some chopped onion, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning.  You mix all of this together and then put the mixture into a casserole dish and bake it until there is a nice crust on the top (about 15 - 20 minutes at 350 F or 180 C).  The amount of seasonings will of course be to taste.

I can't tell you what the exact proportions are because it was always made to fit the casserole dish.
