Turkey on the tableImage by fugutabetai_shyashin via Flickr Here is another recipe for your Thanksgiving feast. This is my Mom's recipe with my own variations... Hope you enjoy!!!

Did you know the difference between stuffing and dressing? Stuffing is cooked inside the bird and dressing outside.
Enough for a 12 lb turkey

3/4 pound pork sausage meat crumbled
1 lg onion, and 3 stalks celery pureed in food processor
¾ pkg Pepperage Farms stuffing cubes
1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
½ c dried cranberries
1-2 cups chicken or turkey broth ,warmed
1/4 teaspoon Bell's seasoning
Salt and pepper

Combine bread cubes and crackers in large bowl
 Saute sausage meat in skillet until browned, drain on paper towels and save drippings
Saute onion and celery in sausage drippings
Add sausage and veggies to stuffing and mix well
Mix in cranberries
Add broth a little at a time until stuffing is moist enough to hold together
Season with salt pepper and bells seasoning
You can either stuff your turkey with this or put in a greased casserole, cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes
