Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the milk, oil and egg; pour over cornmeal mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. Crumble corn bread into a large bowl. Add the parsley, poultry seasoning and pepper; toss. Combine egg substitute and 3/4 cup butter; add to the corn bread mixture, stirring just until blended.
  4. Just before baking, stuff the turkey with dressing. Skewer or fasten openings. Tie drumsticks together. Place on a rack in a roasting pan. Brush with remaining butter. Place remaining dressing in a greased baking dish; cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.
  5. Bake turkey at 325° for 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 165° when inserted in center of stuffing and the thigh reaches at least 170°. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of aluminum foil.
  6. Bake extra dressing at 325° for 1 hour. When turkey is done, let stand for 20 minutes before carving. Remove all dressing to a serving bowl. Yield: 8-10 servings (10 cups dressing).
Editor's Note: As a substitute for 1 cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
