Nutritional Facts

1 serving (4 ounces) equals 776 calories, 38 g fat (14 g saturated fat), 294 mg cholesterol, 1,583 mg sodium, 21 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 82 g protein.

Directions

  1. Pat turkey dry. Combine the butter, salt, pepper, sage and paprika; rub over the outside and inside of turkey. In a skillet, saute celery and onion in butter until tender. In a large bowl, combine the bread cubes, celery mixture, sage, salt and pepper. Add enough broth to moisten; toss gently. Just before baking, loosely stuff turkey. Skewer turkey openings; tie drumsticks together. Place breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 3-1/2 to 4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180° for the turkey and 165° for the stuffing, basting occasionally with pan drippings. Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes before removing stuffing and caving turkey. Yield: 10-12 servings (8 cups stuffing).
