Turkey Dressing

Serves: 6-8 

20 slices of bacon
1 medium onion, chopped fine
4 garlic cloves, minced
6 cups milk
4 eggs, scrambled
1-1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
4 packs of Saltine crackers, crushed and grounded 
salt and pepper

Cut the bacon crosswise, into small bits. Try cutting partially frozen bacon, it is easier to handle. Add bacon to a large skillet or dutch oven and cook until browned. Remove bacon from pan. Drain away some of the fat if need be. Make sure you are left with 4 or so tablespoons.

Throw in onions and garlic and cook until translucent. Add in milk, eggs, poultry seasoning, and finally, crackers. As soon as the cracker mixture begins to look like oatmeal, add back in the bacon bits. Cook, stirring often, until most of the moisture is gone and dressing is sticking to bottom of pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

For easy pan cleanup: add some water to pan, let simmer for five minutes, and scrape stuck-on, dressing bits using a spatula.
