Chuckwagon: Stuffing For A Turkey

From an 1888 cookbook

Mix thoroughly a quart of stale bread, very finely grated; the grated rind of a lemon; quarter of an ounce of minced parsley and thyme, one part thyme, two parts parsley; and pepper and salt to season.  Add to these one unbeaten egg and half a cup of butter; mix all well together and moisten with hot water or milk.  Other herbs than parsley or thyme may be used if preferred, and a little onion, finely minced, added if desired.  The proportions given here may be increased when more is required.
