Turkey Dressing Recipe
One of the best turkey stuffing recipes online, a great turkey stuffing
recipe in traditional homemade style. How to stuff and dress turkeys.
For an eight or ten pound turkey, cut the brown crust from slices
or pieces of stale bread until you have as much as the inside of
a pound loaf; put it into a suitable dish and pour tepid water (not
warm, for that makes it heavy) over it; let it stand one minute,
as it soaks very quickly. Now take up a handful at a time and squeeze
it hard and dry with both hands, placing it, as you go along, in
another dish; this process makes it very light. When all is pressed
dry, toss it all up lightly through your fingers; now add pepper,
salt—about a teaspoonful—also a teaspoonful of powdered summer savory,
the same amount of sage, or the green herb minced fine; add half
a cup of melted butter, and a beaten egg, or not.
Work thoroughly all together, and it is ready for dressing either
fowls, fish or meats. A little chopped sausage in turkey dressing
is considered by some an improvement, when well incorporated with
the other ingredients. For geese and ducks the stuffing may
be made the same as for turkey, with the addition of a few slices
of onion chopped fine.
