Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5 cups Of a rich cornbread
6 slices Whole wheat bread; toasted slightly
2 cups Celery; chopped finely

½ cup Minced parsley
4 tablespoons Butter or margarine
4 teaspoons Salt
¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon Black pepper
1 teaspoon Celery seed

Grind the gizzard and heart and simmer in a quart of water until tender.

Saut‚ celery, green onion and onion in butter until done but not brown. Add most of the seasonings. Mix well the crumbled cornbread and the toasted whole wheat bread which has been soaked in cold water and squeezed dry.

Combine these two mixtures adding parsley and liver that has been minced, cooked gizzard and as much of the liquor from the gizzard as is needed to make a moist dressing. Add rest of seasonings in amounts suggested to suit individual taste and stuff turkey. Allow about 8 cups of stuffing for a 10 pound turkey.
