Grandmas Cracker Dressing Recipe

  • 8 ounces saltine crackers
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  1. In a large bowl, combine the saltine crackers, celery, onion, eggs, parsley and pepper. Set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
