No wise cracks! I know it doesn't look edible but it is so yummy! I inherited this recipe about forty years ago from my mother-in-law, who with ten kids, did everything from scratch. Now it's a family favorite and a yearly request at my daughter's place of employment when they have their holiday party. I share this recipe every year. It's easy to make, too.
Enough to stuff a 13 pound turkey
2 long loaves of cheap white bread - cut up
1 pkg. Jimmy Dean sage sausage - cooked and drained
1 onion - chopped up
3 stalks of celery and the leaves - chopped up
2 cups turkey stock (from scratch), or you can use chicken
2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
- Add everything together but the stock
- Add stock gradually and mix well. You might not use it all. Dressing shouldn't be too wet or too dry.
- Stuff the turkey. Put some on the drum sticks too, it will crisp up and believe me I have family members who fight over that. Personally I like the dressing in the turkey better. Cook the extra in a pan for about 1 hour uncovered.
