Thanksgiving is coming and so are the birds. I love turkey, it is very good for you and it helps you sleep. This is a very healthy source of vitamin B-12. I like to stuff my bird just like my dad, maybe you will too. So wash your hands, wash your bird and here we go.
Lay 8 to 10 slices of bread out to dry. If you want, you can dry the bread the night before that way you know it will be dry.
1. Peel and wash eight medium potatoes, cut them up and cook. When they are cooked and cool enough to touch . . .ADD
2. One medium chopped onion. . .ADD salt and pepper to taste.
3. Ground SAGE . . .1/4 cup of the stuff this is your flavor. Now mix all this all together with your crumbled dry bread and taste, you will know if you want more salt&pepper or a little more sage. If you are pleased with the taste, fill your uncooked washed TURKEY, by placing the stuffing into the bottom end of the bird and the neck.
If you are brave enough, sew each end as best as you can, as the stuffing will swell and come out. If you have left over stuffing you can put it between the wings. If any stuffing falls into your water, don’t worry, it will only add more flavor to your gravy. . . What? what do you mean, what am I taking about. . . When you cook your bird it will be in a roasting pot with water-onion-salt-pepper. RIGHT, right.
Cover your turkey and put it in the oven at 350 degrees, every hour check the turkey and base with the liquid the bird is sitting in. In three and a half to four hours, oh my my. . .mm mm good.
You serve this with potatoes, carrots, cranberries, turnip, pickles and cheese Fit for a king. I can hardly wait for thanksgiving,
