American Turkey Stuffing

This type of stuffing was first served to me at a delightful Thanksgiving Dinner given by some American friends. The recipe, as many are, was handed down from grandmother to mother to daughter. This is my own adaptation, which keeps the variety of flavours and textures.


This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Christmas.


Begin by melting the butter in a large frying pan and lightly fry the chopped onions, celery and chunks of sausage until they become golden at the edges (this will take about 10 minutes).

After that tip these into a large mixing bowl and add all the remaining ingredients.

Mix very thoroughly, seasoning well.
