Categories: Stuffing, Bread, Bacon

Ingredients:

1 Long loaf fresh bread,
-or two regular size loaves
1 Large onion
1 lb Bacon, diced and cooked
4 To 5 stalks celery, diced
3 To 4 eggs
1/4 c Soft butter (not margarine)
Water to moisten
Poultry seasoning to taste
1/4 ts Sweet basil
2 tb Dried of fresh chopped
-parsley
1 ts Garlic powder
1/8 ts Cayenne
1/8 ts Oregano
Black pepper to taste


Break up bread into bite sized chunks into large bowl. Diced and cook bacon
until not quite crisp, saving bacon grease. Chop onion and celery and add
to stuffing mixture. Add bacon and pour grease over top of mixture. Add
eggs, spices, butter and mix together. Use a bit of warm water as needed in
order to bind the mixture together until it holds its own shape.

Rinse turkey and salt the inside. Loosely pack the inside of turkey with
stuffing. Dry off the outside of the turkey by blotting it with paper
towels. Use additional butter to lightly coat the outside and top of bird,
lightly salt and pepper, and then cook according to directions. (20 per lb)

If you are lucky enough to have stuffing left over, shape into balls to
place beside the turkey when it has about 1-1/2 hours left to bake.
