Whether you call it dressing (cooked outside the turkey) or stuffing (cooked inside the turkey), no true southern girl cooks a turkey "plain'! This is a true traditional southern sage dressing that has stood the test of time, as it has been handed down through several generations.

How to Make Yummy Traditional Southern Dressing

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook giblets in boiling water approximately 20-25 minutes. Chop fine. Melt butter and saute celery and onions. Cube bread and cornbread. To it add the salt, poultry seasoning, pepper and sage. Add the celery-onion mixture; stir well. Add the beaten eggs, liquids and parsley. Toss until all ingredients are well blended.
  2. STUFFING; Rinse and pat dry cavity of turkey. Do not pack stuffing in tightly - loosely spoon into cavity. Any remaining mixture can be put into baking pan and cooked as dressing. Cook turkey as directed by size of bird.
  3. DRESSING: Place mixture in 9x13 pan (or size determined by amount of dressing - if using remainder after stuffing turkey). Bake at 350 degrees, covered 30 minutes, uncovered approximately 10 or until lightly browned on top. Be careful not to over bake - may become too dry.
