So later in years Honey's sister & I took over the holiday meals & I took over Thanksgiving. No problem, except that I was expected to cook all of his mom's recipes- talk about intimidating!!! I barely cooked back then. So now I am a pro at it and would like to share some of the Carter Family Thanksgiving Recipes. I hope you enjoy them.
Carter Family "Dressing"
2 large loaves of bread left out overnight to stale
1 lb of sage sausage
1 large onion, chopped fine
2 celery stalks, chopped fine
1 small jar of Mott's applesauce
1 large egg, beaten
1 can of Swanson Chicken broth
1/2 cup of milk
1 large handful of parsley, chopped
rubbed sage to taste
salt & pepper to taste
Crumble the bread in a large pot or bowl.
Brown the sausage, add the onion and celery cooking until tender.
Drain and pour into the crumbled bread.
Add all the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Loosely stuff (hence the term stuffing), into the neck and cavity of the turkey.
Bake with the turkey and remove as soon as the turkey is cooled OR
Place in a well buttered casserole dish and cover with foil, bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees then remove the foil and bake another 15 minutes.
