Turkey with Cornbread Dressing

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
  • Makes
    10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 6 cups cubed day-old cornbread
  • 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

  • In a skillet, saute celery and onion in butter until tender. Place in a large bowl with cornbread, crumbs, sage and poultry seasoning. Combine egg substitute and broth; add to cornbread mixture, stirring gently to mix.
  • 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 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.
Editor's Note: Dressing may be prepared as above and baked in a greased 2-quart casserole dish. Cover and bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes longer or until lightly browned.
