“This dish is a holiday tradition in our family that dates back several generations. I think it's origins are from the Pennsylvania Dutch country. It is quick, easy and a definite compliment to the holiday table.” - by KATHYP100
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- In a large bowl, combine the saltine crackers, celery, onion, eggs, parsley and pepper. Set aside.
- Measure the half-and-half into a small cup and stir in the cornstarch. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in the half-and-half and simmer for a few minutes to thicken. The gravy will be somewhat thin.
- Pour hot gravy over the cracker mixture one cup at a time, stirring each time, until the dressing is moist but not soupy. Cover the bowl tightly with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

I wet the crackers with giblet broth, or chic..." See moreken stock. I have added different variables depending on my whim: sausage, nutmeats, fruit, even oysters. It is a great base for stuffing and I have never appreciated the crouton, bread cube variety since I grew up on this version using saltine crackers."
