TURKEY DRESSING

2 Turkey drumsticks
4 stalks celery
3 med. onions
2 tbsp. black pepper
Lowery seasoning salt
3 med. green peppers
2 tbsp. salt
Self-rising cornmeal
Self-rising flour
4 tbsp. butter (Crockery Shed Spread)
1/2 c. Miracle Whip
2 tbsp. garlic powder
1 doz. unsalted crackers
4 eggs
1/2 c. sugar

Bring to boil turkey drumsticks, 2 celery sticks (diced), 1 onion, 1 bell pepper, 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder, Lowry seasoning and black pepper. Cook over heat until meat well done. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease pan with butter. Mix cornmeal and flour into large mixing bowl 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons salt and 1/2 cup butter. Pour mixture into medium pan and bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Test with fork or toothpick. Once completed, set aside to cool. Cut into squares and crumble into large mixing bowl along with 1 dozen of unsalted crackers. Remove turkey drumsticks from heat, drain broth into separate pot. Pour 1/2 of broth into bread crumbs, saturate completely. Reserve remaining broth for basting dressing throughout the cooking (baking) process. Add fresh season salt, Miracle Whip, 1 medium chopped onion, chopped celery and bell pepper (chopped finely) to cornbread mixture. Add 1 tablespoon butter. Saute new cornbread mixture over medium high for 15 minutes. Pour into greased pan and bake 15-30 minutes. Use reserved turkey broth for basting every 10 minutes to keep moist. Bake until dressing in golden brown. Serves 20 people.


How Should I Stuff the Turkey?

If you don't have much time, you may want to bake your stuffing in a greased, covered casserole during the last hour while the turkey roasts. An unstuffed turkey takes less time to cook than one that is stuffed.
Although it may seem like a good idea to save time by stuffing your turkey in advance, that's inviting trouble. Harmful bacteria can multiply in the stuffing and cause foodborne illness. Stuff the turkey just before you're ready to roast it.

Spoon your stuffing into the bird loosely so there's room for it to expand as it cooks. You can fit one to two cups of stuffing for every pound of meat.
