Recipe by Wreckage
Now that I'm engaged to a Newfie, I have started learning the "old family recipes", as well as some new words... Anyhow, this is the dressing that Newfoundlanders enjoy with their turkey - it is really different than the "stuffing" that I grew up with out in BC. This is enough for a 10 lb turkey.

This is delicious, you are right. I'm a Newfie too. like LuuvBunny, i do not use apples, pine nuts, cinnamon or wine. Have used just apples though with the peel on. Here is a differnt Xmas version. Have found a very Christmas way to make it look and taste even more delicious though. Add in a 1/2 tin of whole cranberries or more to taste. I stuff one end of the bird without the cranberries, the back end. The front with the cranberry flavored dressing. Cranberries give it a delicious and colorful appearance. A huge Hit. Try it backwards to see if you like it first. As not to waste this delicious dressing.
- 10 slices bread
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 cup chopped celery
- 1⁄2 cup chopped apple
- 1 teaspoon savory (Mt. Scio Farm Savoury is made right in Newfoundland)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ginger
- salt and pepper
- 1⁄2 cup melted butter
Directions See How It's Made
- Tear bread slices up and place them in a food processor. Pulse until crumbs, not chunks. Remove crumbs and place in medium bowl.
- Add onion, celery, apple, savoury and ginger, and mix well.
- Add melted butter and mix again. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- NOTE: This can also be placed in foil and heated through for 10 minutes, if not stuffing turkey or if there is extra dressing.
- NOTE: A popular Newfie post-turkey meal is "Chips, dressing, and gravy" in which the leftover dressing is placed on top of french fries and then covered in gravy. A sort of Newfie poutine.
