Homemade Dressing / Stuffing

Every year my daughter's co-workers ask for a pan of my homemade dressing for their holiday party. This is what it looks like. I think it tastes better from inside the turkey but they must like it if they request it every year. Below is the recipe.

To stuff a 13-15 pound turkey

2 loaves cheap white bread - broken up in pieces
1 pkg. Jimmy Dean sage sausage - cooked and drained
1 large onion - chopped up
3-5 celery stalks and the leaves - sliced up
2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
2 chicken bouillon cubes melted in 2 cups water

add all the ingredients in a large bowl except for the chicken broth
gradually add in the broth until you get a mixture that's not too wet and not too dry - may have some broth left over
stuff the cavity of the bird - pack it in tight
I also stuff the crevice between the drum sticks and the breast
extra dressing can be cooked in a pan

Everyone at my house fight over the crispy dressing from around the legs but I like the dressing from inside the bird

Thanks Lisa. It's a recipe I got from my mother-in-law 40 years ago. It's tasty if I do say so myself. Especially with gravy on it:)
