Turkey with Corn Bread Dressing Recipe

Turkey with Corn Bread Dressing Recipe

Nothing gets family hanging around the kitchen like the aroma of a turkey stuffed with savory dressing roasting in the oven. Drizzled with hot gravy, it tastes even better than it smells!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 3-1/2 hours YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 6 cups cubed day-old corn bread
  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 turkey (10 to 12 pounds)
  • Melted butter

Directions

  • 1. In a skillet, saute celery and onion in butter until tender. Place in a large bowl with corn bread, crumbs, sage and poultry seasoning. Combine egg substitute and broth; add to corn bread mixture, stirring gently to mix.
  • 2. Just before baking, stuff the body cavity and inside the neck with dressing. Skewer or fasten openings. Tie the drumsticks together. Place on a rack in a roasting pan. Brush with melted butter. Bake at 325° for 3-1/2 to 4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180° for the turkey and 165° for the stuffing. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of aluminum foil. When turkey is done, allow to stand for 20 minutes. Remove all dressing to a serving bowl. Yield: 8-10 servings.
