Turkey with Herbed Rice Dressing Recipe

My husband is my most avid cooking fan (and my three daughters have all become wonderful cooks in their own right!). We have seven grandchildren.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 4 hours YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery leaves
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • 4 cups cooked white rice, cooled
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon each dried thyme, tarragon and marjoram
  • 1 turkey (10 to 12 pounds)
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook the pork, beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, combine egg substitute, poultry seasoning, parsley, celery leaves, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Add meat mixture and rice.
  • 2. Just before baking, stuff turkey. Skewer openings; tie drumsticks together. Place on a rack in roasting pan. Combine the garlic, thyme, tarragon, marjoram and remaining salt, pepper and garlic powder; rub over turkey. Add broth and butter to pan.
  • 3. Bake at 325° for 4 to 4-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180° for the turkey and 165° for the stuffing, basting frequently. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of aluminum foil. Remove all dressing. Yield: 8-10 servings.
