Every year , I would cook a turkey for the holidays, and every year the dressing would just get sort of picked at and ended up in the trash. I tried a lot of different types and ways of making it but it just never seemed to quite do the trick. Then I began just making the boxed Stove Top dressings and they did somewhat better but were still not quite what we wanted. I began adding a few different ingredients to the boxed mixes and finally, three years ago, ALL of the dressing got eaten with a few compliments thrown in. This is the recipe I ended up with that everyone seems to love.

Ingredients

  • 3 c
    diced celery
  • 1 large
    diced onion (sweet or vidalia)
  • 1 (4oz) box
    wild rice. (do not use the kind with white or brown rice mixed in.)
  • 1 lb
    roll of sage sausage
  • 1 lb
    roll of hot sausage
  • 3 box
    turkey stuffing mix: stove top or store brand. or about 18oz. seasoned dried bread cubes.
  • 3 stick
    margerine
  • 1 c
    water for sausage cooking
  • 4 1/2 c
    liquid (***see below***)

How to Make TURKEY DRESSING

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook wild rice according to box directions for about 1 hour.
  2. While wild rice is cooking, crumble both sausage rolls into a large pot and cook with a cup of water to soften and mash. Cook thoroughly, but NOT to browned or crispy stage.
  3. When sausage is nearly cooked, add diced onion and celery and continue cooking with sausage until onion is clear and celery is soft.
  4. Add the 3 sticks of margerine.
  5. Add cooked wild rice and any liquid left in the rice, and stir well.
  6. NOW ***Either estimate the amount of liquid you end up with from cooking sausage and rice mixture, or drain, save, and measure liquid and set aside. You will need 4 1/2 cups total liquid. You may add some of the juice from your turkey as part of the liquid(best)or just add chicken stock or plain water.***
  7. Add the liquid back to your sausage mixture, bring to a boil again, and remove from stove.
  8. Add seasoned bread cubes to sausage and toss well.
  9. Spray large baking dish with cooking spray to make removing easier and add dressing mixture. (I like to use those disposable aluminum oven pans you can buy at the supermarket.)
  10. Brown top of dressing in 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes and serve hot with your turkey.
  11. NOTE: This recipe makes a lot of stuffing for a large group of 15 or so. I have never tried to cut it down, but I'm sure it can be done at least into thirds. You can also freeze any leftovers.
