How to Make Grandma Belchers Turkey and Dressing
- Take giblet bag out of thawed turkey. Rinse off the giblets with cold water. Put giblets in large pot big enough to hold 2 quarts. I put a stick of celery and half onion in pot with 1 1/2 quarts of water. Add giblets and boil 1 hour. This is your turkey broth for dressing. ( discard the onion and celery)
- Let your broth cool before before making your dressing.
- In a huge bowl tear your 2 loafs of bread into little pieces. Add some of the broth to moisten. Add the diced onion, celery, salt, sage, eggs, and baking powder. Add enough broth to make it sloppy, not soupy. Don't worry it will stiffen up as it bakes.
- Spray your turkey roaster with Pam and stuff the turkey cavity with some of the dressing. Put the turkey (Breast side down) this is what makes your white meat breast juicy. Add the rest of the dressing around the turkey, no more than 2/3 full.
Bake at 350 degrees until turkey is 170 degrees.
