Super easy!

1 medium onion, chopped

2-3 stalks celery, chopped

Cook the onion and celery (add the celery first as it takes a bit longer to cook) in a tablespoon of butter or margarine.  When the onion and celery look semi-transparent, pour it into a large bowl and mix with the following:

1 bag Pepperidge Farms turkey stuffing cubes in sage and onion flavor

1 cup raisins

1 16 oz can of Swanson's chicken broth

You can either stuff your bird with it or put it in a casserole (covered) for about thirty to forty minutes.  YUM!

ETA:  This will stuff an 18-20 pound bird and have a bit left over to put in a crock in the oven.

I was watching food network the other night and saw some realling interesting stuff about stuffing.  The best tip was to put it in a cotton cooking bag and MICROWAVE IT before putting it in the turkey to give it a head start at getting to the right temp to be safe to eat inside the bird without cremating your turkey.  Then using hot mits roll it to a tube shape and then using something waterproof that can be rolled into a tube to make a 'funnel' for the turkey cavity push it through to get it to fit into the turkey.


What I'll be doing this year...

diced onion, diced celery, diced green pepper

2 eggs

3 cups diced bread of your choice

1 tbsp salt/ 1 tsp pepper

2 ounces chopped macadamia

Diced ham

(onion and garlic powder your choice)



Instead of stuffing the turkey, I'm stuffing acorn squash though.

This is the one I make

Apple-Bread Stuffing
·    1 loaf sturdy white bread (like bakery bread)
·    1 medium onion
·    2 apples
·    1 tsp dried thyme
·    1 stick butter melted
·    salt and pepper to taste
·    1/2 cup chicken broth

·    Open bread two days in advance and let sit on counter and get stale. (sounds yummy so far huh, LOL)
·    Once bread s nice and stale, cut it into 1 inch cubes and put in a large bowl.
·    Cube the onion into large chunks. Add to bread in bowl.
·    Peel and core apples and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Add to bread and onion.
·    Add the thyme and mix with your hands, don't over mix.
·    Drizzle half the butter over the mixture and mix with hands.
·    Now drizzle the rest of the butter over it and mix again.
·    Add salt and pepper to taste.
·    Now drizzle chicken broth over the mixture and mix it with your hands as you go to evenly cover the mixture without making it mushy in one place. Put inside the turkey, don't over fill. To keep stuffing in the turkey while it roasts, use the heel of the bread and wedge it into the turkey's opening to hold the stuffing in place. Fill the neck opening also and close it however you prefer to

We use sausage, onions, celery, apples, raisins, stuffing and chicken broth. I can't tell you the exact measurements...we just put as much in as we think would be good.
