My favorite Thanksgiving recipe is for bread stuffing to go into the turkey.  This is my step dad's recipe and I think it came from his Irish mother.

Ken's Stuffing

  • Use 3 full loaves of three different kinds of bread (white, wheat and rye are nice)
  • Cut the bread into cubes and moisten with about 2 cups of water or chicken broth sprinkled over the cubes (in a very large bowl).
  • Add these dry ingredients to the bowl and mix
    • 4-6 crisp pieces of bacon crumbled
    • 1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
    • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons of nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon sage
  • In a large skillet (my dad used an iron skillet with bacon grease)
    • Add a tablespoon or two of your favorite cooking oil
    • Saute a large chopped onion
    • Add 1 cup of chopped celery
  • Now add the bread mixture to the skillet
  • In a small bowl combine 2 eggs and 2 cups of milk.
  • Pour the milk/egg mixture over the bread in the skillet and saute (keep folding over the layers) until the egg looks cooked - about 10 minutes.
  • Stuff both ends of the Turkey with the stuffing and cook as normal
  • Be sure to remove the stuffing from the bird as soon as it comes out of the oven.
