Tom Turkey Stuffing Recipe @pinch

If you have never baked a stuffed turkey, this is a great recipe to start with. It is amazing. The turkey skin is golden brown and holds in the juicy meat. A simple stuffing/dressing is baked to perfection inside the turkey. This roast turkey would be the perfect centerpiece on any holiday table. My mom always made this stuffing for our turkey. I would wait until it came out of the oven to cool and pull off the crispy pieces from the turkey. Yum! It is great the next day cold with turkey on a sandwich with mayo! My kids now use this recipe for the Thanksgiving turkey but prefer to bake it in a separate casserole dish. I prefer stuffing the turkey so that the turkey juice absorbs into the stuffing.

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Turkey Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 12-15 pound(s) turkey
  • 2 cup(s) diced celary
  • 2 cup(s) chopped sweet onions
  • 2 stick(s) butter or margerine
  • 1 pound(s) mild breakfast sausage roll
  • 1 large bag potato bread cubes or cornbread cubes
  • 3 - eggs, beaten well
  • 2 can(s) chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon(s) dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon(s) poultry seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon(s) paprika
  • 1 tablespoon(s) salt
  • 1 tablespoon(s) pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) onion powder
Intructions :
  • After the turkey has been thawed, rinse well outside and inside. Be sure to remove packets of giblets from within the turkey. Drain well and pat dry. Place on a tray
  • In a large fry pan, melt one stick of butter/margarine. Add the celery and onions and saute until just a little soft. Remove from pan and set aside
  • Add the sausage and start to break up into small pieces. Cook until no longer pink. Remove from heat. Place in a strainer to remove the grease. Let sausage cool. When cool, place in food processor and pulse until it is in small pieces. You don't want it too fine
  • Return sausage to fry pan; add the celery/onion mixture. Add salt, pepper, parsley, and poultry seasoning. Mix well and taste
  • In a very large bowl, place the bread cubes. Add the sausage mixture and mix to incorporate
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and add 1 cup of the chicken stock. Mix well. Pour over the stuffing mix. Toss to moisten the cubes. Add more broth to make the cubes moist, but not wet. You may need more broth to reach this stage. Adjust seasonings to your liking
  • Put the stuffing in the turkey cavity and neck area. Be sure not to overstuff as the bread is going to swell and you don't want it to explode. Any leftover stuffing can be made into balls and placed in a cupcake tin for cooking later
  • Combine one stick of butter/margarine in a saucepan and melt. Add paprika, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Mix well. Let cool
  • Then with your hands, massage the mixture into the turkey skin
  • Proceed to bake as you normally do. Remember that you have to add 30-60 minutes more to the cooking time due to the stuffing in the turkey.
