The secret to mine is I add chopped walnuts, one diced apple, along with the cooked giblets, chopped celery, one can of diced water chestnuts. I then add 1/4 cup apple juice and 1/4 cup orange juice. I bake it in a pan, or sometimes I stuff the turkey with it.
This is my most requested dish!

Chop and cook the onion, celery, and peppers in the butter till tender, the day before.
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
Add chicken/turkey broth to desired consistency.
Sprinkle with sage to taste
Layer in pan 3/4 of an inch thick.
Bake at 350 degrees F till it looks yummy and crisp on top. Let cool a bit then slice in squares.

Melt the margarine in a large skillet add the onions. keep stirring so it don't brown.
Break up the sausage into pieces and add to the onion and butter in pan. Keep stirring until sausage is done.
Take the bread and soak it in your hands under water and squeeze the excess water out and break it up into sausage mixture until the whole loaf is done. Mix thoroughly.
Add 2 eggs, salt, thyme to taste. Mix well.
Either stuff the turkey or serve the dressing on the side. It doesn't matter, as it is fully cooked. Enjoy!
You can always double the recipe, just in case you keep tasting it.

With the exception of the butter, mix all ingredients together. If it seems dry, add a little milk. Taste for flavour and put into oven dish. Dot with butter on top.
Cook in the oven medium heat for 45 minutes and the top will be crispy. Adjust amounts for the number of diners.
Hope this helps.

When my mother would make bread stuffing for turkey or steak, I would not eat stuffing because I don't like onions. Well, I married in 1966 and the first dinner I had with my new in-laws was Thanksgiving. When my mother-in-law set the big bowl of stuffing on the table, I thought it looked so good and smelled so good that I sampled it. Wow, it was incredible!
After a few years, I decided to make my first turkey and asked her how she made her stuffing. The recipe is the usual bread stuffing recipe, but she used a lot of butter, eggs, she cut her onion and celery very very fine, salt, a lot of pepper, chicken broth or turkey broth (don't make the bread too wet), but the secret surprise was sugar. Her mother cooked for the Italian priest in our town and was the best Italian cook, so was my mother-in-law, but the sugar does it.
If you cut up a big loaf of bread, add a heaping tablespoon or a little more and mix the bread stuffing lightly with your hands. All my girlfriends use sugar and their familes don't want it any other way. Try it, you will see how good this is. The sugar brings out all of the other flavors. My mother-in-law taught me how to cook and I am so glad that I paid attention. She is gone now, but we still enjoy her recipes.
For some time I have been looking for a good recipe for dressing that is not stuffed in the bird, but baked separately. I would appreciate any that anyone can pass on. Thanks.

I buy seafood stuffing at my local supermarket, that I love. It has breadcrumbs, imitation crab meat, seasonings, and butter. I have tried to make my own and it does not taste great. Does anybody have a tasty recipe for me? Thank you.
By Gladys from Chelsea, MA
I believe seafood stuffing usually has shrimp in it. What you might be looking for is a crab stuffing recipe. Here is one that received ten 5-star reviews.
I am looking for a recipe for meat and potato stuffing. My uncle use to make this wonderful dish, but I have forgotten how it was made. My sister and I would love to know how.
Thank you in advance.
Does anyone have a recipe for stuffing that is baked in the oven instead of the turkey that turns out crunchy? I remember having this as a kid at a relatives house, it was so good, but don`t know how it was prepared.

Has anyone got a really nice recipe for stuffing?
Karolyn from Dublin
I then add my seasonings:
Start with a little and add more to suit your taste once all is mixed together. Add cornbread, bacon, and sausage to pot and stir well just until bread is moist. Stuff inside the turkey or place into a 13x9x2 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray.
Cook for 30-45 minutes on 375 degrees covered in foil, then take foil off and cook another 10 minutes, or so. If cooking inside of the turkey, go by directions on the turkey packaging.
Store-bought crouton style stuffing: I follow the same recipe above minus the bacon and sausage and using the store-bought crouton style stuffing. (12/01/2004)
One year I didn't make it during the holidays, because we were eating at my mom's and, boy, did I hear it. (12/03/2004)
By Fran Marie
Mix with your hands really good, then add 1 cup chopped celery and 1/2 cup chopped onion. Lightly grease 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 30 minutes or until it is golden brown. You can add chicken to this if you want. But when you already have chicken or turkey why do you need another meat? Plain old dressing is good. this is the traditional dressing. (12/04/2004)
My sisters all want my recipe for this dressing, but I will not give it to them. I take this to all our family dinners and everyone look forward to getting it. I don't give this to any of my family, so I will know that I'm bringing a dish that no one else brings. (12/15/2004)
