It wouldn't be Christmas in our family without this satisfying stuffing made from potatoes. My mother-in-law shared the recipe years ago, and I've since passed it on to our grown children.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups riced cooked potatoes
  • 4 cups fine soft bread crumbs
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup egg substitute
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 turkey (10 to 12 pounds)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the potatoes and crumbs; set aside. In a skillet, saute onions in butter until tender; add to potato mixture. Stir in egg substitute, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.
  2. Just before baking, stuff turkey. Skewer and fasten openings. Tie drumsticks together. Place with breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan. Cover and bake at 325° for 3 to 3-3/4 hours or until a thermometer reads 180° for the turkey and 165° for the stuffing.
<b>Editor's Note:</b> Stuffing may also be baked in a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 325&deg; for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes longer or until heated through.
Soft Bread Crumbs
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
