Thanks giving turkey stuffing
What you will need:
there is never a correct recipe for the turkey staffing thus there is a general formula for this, mix a dry base, like yesterdays bread, and some sauteed vegetables, meat (if you wish to), herbs and spices and then add something to keep all together like, eggs or some broth and mix slowly everything in a bowl, you can adapt this stuffing to your friends and family preferences to make it irresistible.
So here are the ingredients for this recipe:
- cold bread loaf
- 4 cups of chopped vegetables
- 1 cup of mixed parsley, sage and thyme
- 3 eggs
- 1 pound of meat
- butter or olive oil
- 4 cups of dry fruit, vegetables or nuts
- 3 spoons of your favorite dressing
If using white bread, cut into slices 1/4- to 1/2-inch wide, and leave overnight to dry.Break into 1/4-inch pieces (if using corn bread, broken into 1-inch).
Cut a large variety of vegetables and herbs, and spread the liquid.
Saute sausage, pork or beef until cooked and remove from pan with a slotted spoon
Saute chopped vegetables in the rendered fat of meat (or butter and olive oil) until tender.
Combine cooked meat (like ham or sausage), all vegetables, fruits, nuts, and bread and mix.
Add herbs and spices and stir again.
Add liquid and season test (if using raw eggs or oysters, season before adding, then add the liquid and finally the three beaten eggs.) Mix until combined - if you mix too get a rubbery texture.
Stuff the turkey just before roasting. Use ½ to ¾ cup of stuffing per pound of turkey. Do not fill too well, as the stuffing expands while cooking. Use a thermometer to make sure the stuffing reaches 165 degrees, remove the thermometer as soon as the turkey from the oven. Bake extra stuffing in a greased baking dish covered with butter. Bake at 375 degrees until heated through and top is browned, 30 to 40 minutes.
