Do you need a tried-and-true turkey stuffing recipe to complete your holiday dinner? Here's a traditional Amish favorite you can't miss!
We've been talking a lot about cooking a perfect turkey lately. While the turkey is the centerpiece of a memorable Thanksgiving dinner, there are other essential components that go into crafting a holiday feast that your guests won't forget.
Next to the turkey itself, a delicious turkey stuffing is probably the most important part of your meal. In this post we'll show you how to make a turkey stuffing that will not disappoint!
- 1 gallon bread cubes
- 1-1/4 sticks butter
- 1/4 cup lard
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 tablespoon salt
- Finely ground black pepper (approximately 1 teaspoon)
- 3 cups celery (ground in food processor)
- In a saucepan, brown the butter and add the lard. Mix the two until they are fully melted.
- Remove the mixture from the heat, and stir one-half of it into the bread cubes and set them aside.
- Beat the eggs until fluffy and add the salt and pepper. Pour the eggs over the bread cubes.
- Move the saucepan back to the heat and add the celery to the remaining butter and lard. Stir the celery until it's heated thoroughly.
- Let the celery mixture cool and combine it with the bread mixture, stirring it well.
- Cook the stuffing at 350 degrees F in an uncovered baking dish for 30–45 minutes, stirring it occasionally.
This recipe can also be stuffed in a 12–14 pound turkey and cooked with the turkey.
