Savoury Roast Turkey Dressing


Number of Servings: 6
Prep Time: 25 min Skill Level: Average


6 slices bread (180 g), crusts included *
2 tbsp soft margarine or butter (25 mL)
1 cup chopped mushrooms (250 mL)
1/2 cup each chopped celery and onion (125 mL)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (50 mL)
1 tsp dried tarragon (5 mL)
1/2 tsp paprika (2 mL)
Pinch ground nutmeg and freshly ground pepper


1. Prepare bread crumbs in food processor or by hand.

2. In non-stick skillet, melt margarine over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, celery, onion and parsley for 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened.

3. Cool.

4. Stir in tarragon, paprika, nutmeg, and pepper.

5. Stir into bread crumbs.

Helpful Hints:

The best dressing is made with bread one or two days old. Stuff turkey (or chicken) just before you roast it. This recipe makes enough to stuff a 6-lb (3 kg) chicken; double the recipe for a 12-lb (6 kg) turkey.
