We stopped stuffing the turkey since we started brining. The "stuffing" has now become dressing. I prefer an herb dressing. The best part is the after dinner sandwich! Bread, mayo, turkey, dressing, jellied cranberry, S&P.

Oh my. Will just have to try and find that recipe. That bread is so good. I have made it in the past. I do remember I sauteed the celery and carrots prior to mixing them in with the bread dough. I suppos if I just made my standard bread dough and winged it from there, I could do it again.

Wing it, but take notes.

I always salt and rinse the inside cavity, pat it dry. That's how my grandma did it. I haven't gotten food poisoning or died yet. I've been eating turkey with stuffing going on 50 some years. Safe food handling practices are key. I also don't stuff the bird until it is time to pop it in the oven. Most of the time, however, I just roast the bird and don't stuff it. Stuffing is for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Not sure how many turkeys we'll buy this year--the lowest advertised price here is $1.27/lb. In the past, we could get utility grade turkeys around this time of year for 99 cents/lb. A reflection of the higher feed costs, gas, processing?

When my kids were small, one year I bought a turkey. It was $.49 a pound. Then Son #1 won one at the H.S. drawing. I knew the woman next door couldn't afford to buy one to feed her large family. And I also knew she was proud and wouldn't accept charity. So I sold it to her for $.10 a pound. It was a fifteen pounder. But I took the label off and told her it was a ten pounder. So she paid me the $1.00.

Thank you. I am a sucker for kids in need. I can't stand the thought of a hungry child. Or even missing out on a special holiday. That's why I give to the food bank every month. Cereal and a large jar or two of jelly so they can take a sandwich to school. The bank has plenty of peanut butter. I just wish I could convince some of the residents here to do the same occasionally. I would even deliver it for them. Even though the food bank is just a five minute walk away.

1. Bake loaf of bread adding sage, fresh oregano, thyme, fresh parsley chopped & poultry seasoning. The aroma of the bread will make the kitchen smell wonderful. This should be done a few days ahead of time.
2. Dice bread into 1/2 " cubes and dry for a few days. Toast in oven.
3. Fry up a diced large onion & a few stocks of celery in butter until translucent. In a large bowl add to bread cubes & mix with a tablespoon of poultry spice and turkey stock until moist.
4. Roast in oven at 325 to 350F covered for 30 minutes. Remove cover & brown 15 minutes
5. The hit of the Turkey Dinner. MMM MMM good

I just took a white bread recipe and "winged" it! The house smelled wonderful! The next time, I make it I'll put in even more herbs, my SO is a stuffing fanatic!

I need a family so I can make this stuffing bread again. My daughter is not eating too much now. The chemo has already started to affect her appetite. We are having a Columbus Day Parade on Sunday. It is a big thing here. She always had a houseful of company and plenty of food. Not this year. But I think I will try to make something that will appeal to her. Maybe just a bowl of stuffing. She loves it.
