Saltine cracker dressing is a retro, mid-modern, in the bird stuffing. All the ingredients can be prepared ahead of time, placed in plastic Ziploc bags in the refrigerator, and mixed the morning of Thanksgiving to be stuffed in the bird. The saltine crackers used in this recipe instead of other bread, have to be crushed, and this can take some time. As with many side dishes, this is one that is easily prepared the day or two before for easy preparation on Thanksgiving morning.
Before I was married, I had never heard of a saltine cracker stuffing for a Thanksgiving turkey. Stuffing on Thanksgiving day was never one of my favorite dishes however once I was in her dues to the saltine cracker recipe, it became one of my favorites. This dressing is full of flavor but more crunchy than a lot of soggy dressings. If traditional stuffing is not your favorite you might want to give this one a try. It looks a little strange mixed in the bowl, but once it is removed from the bird it is moist, flavorful, and delicious.

I would recommend that you always purchase fresh saltine crackers from the grocery store, and don’t use the boxes of crackers that you have had for a while. The fresher the cracker the more flavorful stuffing for the Retro Mid Mod Cracker Stuffing Dressing Thanksgiving Turkey.
