Mom's Turkey Dressing


Here's my mom's wonderful turkey stuffing recipe that she makes every year for Thanksgiving. Enjoy! 

6 tablespoons chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup hot turkey broth
*8 cups dry bread cubes (10-12 slices). 
1 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 1/4 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Turkey giblets and meat from neck/wing
1 cup chopped celery
1 package cornbread stuffing mix, prepared as package directed
1 package turkey stuffing mix, prepared as package directed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan, saute onion in butter. Stir in turkey broth. In a large bowl combine dry bread cubes, poultry seasoning, sage, salt, and pepper. Pour butter mixture over bread crumbs and toss to moisten. May add more broth, if needed. Mix in giblets and turkey meat. Stir in chopped celery and prepared stuffing mixes. Mix everything together and place in a foil-lined roasting pan. Bake for 30-60 minutes until edges turn crisp and brown. Serves 20-24.

*Dry bread cubes beforehand, slice and cube and freeze until ready to use. Do not use store bought as it is too hard.
