Why I Love This Recipe
This is nice when you want something other than a regular bread dressing or sausage dressing.
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 lb. bacon (10 to 12 slices)
1 cup chopped onion
5 cups bread crumbs or cubes (10 to 12 slices)
4 celery tops, chopped
1/2 cup giblets, cooked (or up to 1/2lb. ground meat or sausage, cooked and drained)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. summer savory (or poultry seasoning)
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup grape juice (not drink)
1/2 cup giblet or soup stock
Brown bacon and drain.
Cook onions in the hot bacon fat until clear. Drain off excess fat.
Mix onions together with bread crumbs, celery, crumbled bacon, cooked, minced giblets (or cooked meat or sausage), and seasonings. Moisten with juice and stock.
Stuff turkey loosely and roast.
Makes enough for an eight- to 12-pound bird.
