1/4 cup butter
1 lb. ground pork (if you like)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 cup celery, finely chopped
4 cups bread, dried and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 teaspoon salt (if you like)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 1/4 cup turkey juice or vegetable broth
Brown garlic in butter (and pork if you're using in this recipe)
Add mushrooms and sauté.
Add the rest of the vegetables and cook until they begin to soften.
Then lower heat to medium and add bread cubes and seasonings.
Continue cooking for approximately 5 more minutes, stirring continuously.
Add the turkey juice or hot vegetable stock and mix well.
Cover and cook over low heat for at least 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until bread cubes have broken down.
Slow cooking and frequent stirring makes this a nice stuffing.
Makes 3-4 cups of stuffing
Sprinkle some of the turkey juice or canned broth over the stuffing to moisten it if you like.
