Turkey Dressing by Amanda Michal (Nana)


1 jalepeno cornbread
2 regular cornbread
4-6 pieces of crumbled toasted white bread
1 pks crushed saltine crackers (4 pks to a box)
1 grated apple
3 to 4 stalks celery
4 hard boiled eggs
1 med chopped onion
Salt and pepper to taste (maybe 2 tsp. of each)
1 lb giblets (bought at market, no liver)
6-8 Garlic cloves (I usually 2x or 3x this amount) Turkey/chicken broth (Note: I added juice of bagged turkey (1 quart) + 2 quarts of bullion liquid + 1 quart with the boiled gizzards and it still needed more water.)
2 cans Chicken Broth (14 oz)

Other optional ingredients:

Nana sometimes adds 1 lb of browned hamburger meat to the dressing instead of giblets
1 small jar pimentos
1 small can green chili peppers


Bake jalapeno cornbread and regular cornbread ahead--crumble with crumbled toasted white bread and crushed crackers. Boil onion, celery, giblets in at least 1 quart water till done. Add grated apple, cooked meat, celery, hard boiled eggs, chopped onion, and broth/liquid. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add cooked meat and turkey broth from baked turkey. Bake 45 minutes at 350. Stir, reduce heat and cook until done. Hers looks really soupy--may add canned chicken broth if needed for extra juice.
