Traditional Sage Dressing (Stuffing) is the only kind of stuffing our kids want to eat. They love their traditions. We love our stuffing cooked right in the bird. It’s much juicier that way. But you’re gonna put gravy over it anyway, aren’t you?
Traditional Sage Dressing (Stuffing) for a Turkey
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I’d write about traditional Thanksgiving foods.
My kids love Traditional Sage Dressing (Stuffing), made with bread cubes, sage, onion and celery, baked in the turkey. They think any other kind is un-American and would turn up their noses if I served them cornbread stuffing or stuffing that included the giblets.
I must admit, I like this stuffing best, but I do like to try other kinds once in awhile. My favorite stuffing mix is Pepperidge Farm, but most bread crumb stuffing mixtures are okay. I always add much more sage, onion and celery to it, however. I like it stuffed in the neck area because I like the dressing all toasty brown like it is in the picture above.
We bake our turkey (stuffed, of course) in our Nesco Roasting Pan. That way, we can make all the sides in the oven. Brilliant!
Check out the recipe…
Traditional Sage (Dressing) Stuffing Recipe
Traditional Sage Dressing (Stuffing)
Sage, onion, celery, and cubed bread, blended to perfection and baked. What could be better? Except Gravy. You need gravy, of course.
- 1 14-ounce Bag of Pepperidge Farm Traditional Stuffing
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 4 tablespoons butter melted
- 3 sticks of celery diced
- 1 yellow onion medium, diced
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1-2 Tablespoons leaf sage crumbled
Mix all the ingredients except the eggs.
When the mixture cools, add the eggs and mix thoroughly.
Fill the interior cavity of the turkey with this mixture and bake it until the turkey is done.
Or bake it separately from the turkey in a small buttered casserole dish for 25-35 minutes until the top is crispy and the stuffing is hot.
Get yourself a good Turkey platter. You will never regret it.
