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.
- 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.
