My husband is my most avid cooking fan (and my three daughters have all become wonderful cooks in their own right!). We have seven grandchildren.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery leaves
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • 4 cups cooked white rice, cooled
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon each dried thyme, tarragon and marjoram
  • 1 turkey (10 to 12 pounds)
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook the pork, beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, combine egg substitute, poultry seasoning, parsley, celery leaves, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Add meat mixture and rice.
  2. Just before baking, stuff turkey. Skewer openings; tie drumsticks together. Place on a rack in roasting pan. Combine the garlic, thyme, tarragon, marjoram and remaining salt, pepper and garlic powder; rub over turkey. Add broth and butter to pan.
  3. Bake at 325° for 4 to 4-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 180° for the turkey and 165° for the stuffing, basting frequently. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of aluminum foil. Remove all dressing.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> Dressing may be baked in a greased 2-1/2-qt. covered baking dish at 325&deg; for 70 minutes (uncover during the last 10 minutes). Dressing yields about 8 cups.
