Filling (Or Stuffing or Dressing)

1 lb bread cubes (I save old dried bread crusts, rolls, cornbread, etc in the freezer for this)
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cup celery ( I don't always have this.)
1 small onion
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
1/8 tsp sage
1 T parsley
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 egg
3/4 cup milk

Saute chopped celery and onion in butter. Mix with bread and seasonings. Beat egg with milk and mix into bread. Put in greased 9x13 pan. Cover. Bake at 325 for one hour.
This can easily be frozen ahead.
For turkey and filling casserole, add 3 cups cooked chopped turkey and mix well before baking.
Our favorite way to make filling is fry it in a skillet on the stove instead of baking. It only takes about 15 minutes and it is crunchy and "oh, so good!"

    I have a pumpkin pie recipe I'd like to share with you. The only heart concession I make is I use fat free half n half instead of heavy cream. I buy or grow pie pumpkins and cook and freeze them in October. Give this a try.

    Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme


    1½ cups sugar pumpkin puree
    ¾ cup packed brown sugar
    1¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
    ⅛ teaspoon ground allspice
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ⅔ cup real maple syrup
    1 ¼ cups half-and-half cream
    1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
    3 eggs
    1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell


    Measure 1½ cups pumpkin puree. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and salt. Stir in maple syrup, half-and-half, and flour. Mix in eggs one at a time. Pour filling into unbaked pie shell.

    Bake at 350°F for 1 hour, or until center is set.

    Refrigerate before serving.

  2. This was my dressing recipe for Thanksgiving 2016. I cook for someone as part of my job. This was the hit of the day! The person I cook for couldn't say enough good things about the dressing, and is still talking about it. He was delighted to learn that it is simple and affordable enough for me to make frequently. Thank you!

  3. I'll have to try that fried dressing idea. Sounds yum!
    Happy Thanksgiving!


I love to hear from you.
