Meat Dressing (for about a 14 pound turkey)

If this dressing does not all fit into the cavity or breast/neck area put the balance in a casserole dish for about an hour beside the turkey.

Turkey giblets (heart, liver, gizzard and the neck-boil these ahead of time in water to cover and when cool cut up into small pieces, save liquid to add to drippings from the bird for the gravy)
3 lbs. of grd. beef or a mix of beef and pork
3 slightly beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups dried bread crumbs
1 cup chopped onions
4 minced cloves of garlic
1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
1 tbsp. salt
2 tsp. sage
2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 tsp. black pepper

Mix all together.

Fill cavity of bird and if the bird is not large enough to hold it all then some can go into the neck/breast area under the skin.

If there are still leftovers place in a casserole dish beside the turkey for one hour.

**If stuffing a chicken for roasting reduce this to 1/3

Whenever my kids are home and I cook a bird they insist I make this stuffing/dressing. They prefer this one to any other. It is my own recipe.
