Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I prepared a nine pounder with all the trimmings for just Kim and me.
Went a little nuts with the desserts - two pumpkin pies, a peanut butter cheese cake and a two layer cheese cake!
I also resurrected a stuffing that i "made up" some years ago and it is worthy of sharing:
Larry's Turkey Stuffing
one pound of lean ground pork
clove minced garlic
red pepper flakes to taste
1 tsp crushed fennel seeds
fresh mushrooms, sliced
medium yellow onion . chopped
1 package Uncle Ben's Rice/Wild Rice
1 package turkey stuffing
mix the pork and first five ingredients together thoroughly by hand. Put a little oil in a skillet and pinch off small pieces of the pork sausage to brown evenly in the pan. When it has released its juices, add the onion and the mushrooms and cook until vegetables are done. set aside
Follow instructions for stuffing and Rice/Wld Rice. when finished, add all ingredients together and toss thoroughly. Stuff bird with part of dressing. Bake remainder covered during final 45 minutes with turkey.
