On January 15, 2009 Debra Morrow Nolan asked:
All or my life during the holidays we have had some dishes that represented our irish part of my heritage i.e. mince pies, colcannon, etc.
However, the one I haven’t seen anywhere is potato filling (dressing). For my grandfather and his family this was what they had (instead of a bread dressing) w/their turkey.
Is this a traditional food that other’s partake? Or, simply a family item? If, in fact, it is a known dish could you tell me about it (origins, area of the country it is common to etc.)?
