Recipe by Gerry
This dressing is served and enjoyed at the turkey suppers served by one of our local church catering groups - they have shared the recipe. Another favorite from the prairies found in "A Taste Of Heaven" Cookbook - a cookbook compiled with local recipes which helped fund a StairLift for those no longer able to climb the steps. People come from miles around for those turkey suppers and banquets prepared and served by - yes volunteers!
- 10 cups cubed bread
- 1 1⁄3 cups margarine (or butter)
- 2 cups celery (diced)
- 2 cups onions (chopped)
- 2 cups apples (peeled and diced)
- 1⁄2 cup raisins (optional)
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley (I use fresh when available)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons thyme
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sage (I like to add more)
- 2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Cube the bread (I like to cube it the day before) dice and chop the apples and vegetables.
- In large pan add margarine; saute the celery and onion then add all the rest of the remaining ingredients - pour over the cubed bread.(I like adding the bread cubes to the pan and toss to mix).
- NOTE - this is the basic recipe - taste and add more of the seasonings you like until it is pleasing to you (I add more sage).
- Stuff the turkey breast and cavity using skewers where needed.
