Oatmeal Turkey Stuffing

This is an essential part of our Christmas tradition. Bread stuffing tastes drab and spongey in comparison.

ingredients

directions

  • Dice onion and celery.
  • Melt butter in a large frying pan or sauce pan.
  • Add onion and celery and saute until soft.
  • Add oatmeal and seasonings. My mom uses poutry seasoning and that is really nice too.
  • Stir until well mixed.
  • Moisten with water until clumpy.
  • Gently pack into the turkey cavity bottom and top.
  • Roast the bird as you would with bread stuffing. It smells wonderful.
  • You can also make this as a side dish if you steam it in the pan. Made like that, it's called scurly.

  1. Susan A.
    Is that 5 cups of uncooked oatmeal? What consistency is it when it goes into the turkey? Thanks, Susan

    This is a traditional Scottish recipe. It is important to note that you should not use rolled oats in this recipe. You use steel cut oats. It is delicious although I suggest replacing the water with either vegetable or chicken broth and the description of the amount of liquid to use is a bit vague. You want to add enough that it forms a soft mass.
