Sage Stuffing!

Just in time for Thanksgiving! Mom's Sage Stuffing!

Mom stuffed the turkey right before she put it in the oven.

Mom’s Sage Stuffing

Mom  made her sage stuffing for Thanksgiving and Christmas... I just loved the way she made it.  She did stuff the bird, no question about it and the neck too right before it went in the oven!!! 

We couldn't get enough of it..  It was always around a 20 lb. bird.

Here’s the recipe..Enjoy

2 sticks margarine( I use butter)
2 medium onions chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped celery tops and all
4 eggs slightly beaten
2- 16 oz. packages of toasted bread cubes
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 tsp. dried sage
At least 1 qt. Milk (she used whole) I don't know if we ever used anything but whole milk

Melt margarine in pot.  Add onion and cook over low heat until onion is transparent, add celery.. Cook slowly until tender..  Set aside. Note:  Mom would make her stuffing the night before and place it in a resealable bag and refrigerated it until she was ready to stuff the turkey the next day.  It saved time for sure!

Place toasted bread cubes in a large bowl and soak with milk, add salt, pepper and sage then add cooked onion/ celery.. This stuffing is enough for a 18 to 20 lb. turkey; stuffing the chest cavity and enough for an extra 8 x 8 pan which she did separately..(Make sure to grease pan).

 Bake according to turkey directions.. Hope you enjoy this recipe and I am sure my Mom will be glad that I shared it with you! 

 Happy Thanksgiving from Mom's kitchen to yours!
