My Scottish grandmother was a fine lady (and artist), yet had few recipes to hand down. This one is worth sharing. Now that Thanksgiving is around the bend, heres a great (although hardly low fat) and simple stuffing recipe she used to make. Combine all ingredients in a bowl with your hands. Form into a ball. Tie in clean cloth (we used to cut up a old clean undershirt -- please no fabric softener -- gives weird taste) with rope. Simmer tied up ball of stuffing one hour in broth. Let it sit and get cold (you can prepare a day ahead). Tastes best reheated. Zap it in the microwave before serving. The secret is the undershirt, although purists may want to substitute cheesecloth etc. WORTHING@IX.NETCOM.COM (RW/JW ) REC.FOOD.RECIPES From archives. Downloaded from G Internet, G Internet.

Oatmeal stuffing originated mainly in the North East of Scotland and is made with OATMEAL, NOT the so called "soft" or "rolled" oats which is a non Highland,factory made foodstuff for sasenachs. Meal is a simple product made by milling the grain, in this case Oats into varrious grades of coarseness. Oatcakes require a fine grade for instance. From a Highland Scotsman.
