Homemade turkey stuffingSubmitted by: AEF_BTRFLI
1-1/2 loaves wheat bread
1/2 stick butter
3 sticks celery
1/2 c onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp fresh sage
about 2 c fresh turkey broth
all the turkey giblets
Meanwhile, boil the giblets and turkey neck in a stock pot, with A LOT of water.
Tear up bread into small strips. Add egg, salt and pepper, onion mixture. Add enough broth so mixture sticks together. It will be tacky.
Stuff the turkey (both ends- don't forget there's a small cavity at the neck!) and immediately bake the turkey for the required time.
I usually use honeysuckle turkeys and I think it's 325. For a 20 pound turkey, bake approximately 5 hours. Adding the stuffing will increase the cook time.
Use the leftover broth in the stock pot to make turkey pot pie.
Number of Servings: 12
