3 tablespoons butter or margarine

1 large yellow onion (chopped)

5 cups crumbled corn bread

3/4 cup lower-sodium chicken broth

1 large egg (lightly beaten)

Stir into the corn bread mixture. Toss to coat well.

Step 2:

Preheat oven to 325°F. Rinse turkey, drain and pat dry. Remove neck and giblets; set aside to make the Giblet Gravy. Stuff and truss turkey. Place, breast-side-up, on a rack in a large roasting pan. Brush with oil. Insert roasting thermometer in turkey thigh without touching bone. Spoon remaining stuffing into a lightly greased 2-quart casserole; cover and refrigerate.

Step 3:

Roast turkey for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 180°F, basting often and covering with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Bake the covered casserole of stuffing alongside turkey during the last 30 minutes of roasting, adding an additional 2 to 3 tablespoons chicken broth if stuffing is dry. Let turkey stand for 15 to 20 minutes before carving.

Step 4:

Meanwhile, cook neck and giblets for giblet gravy. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the pan drippings from roast turkey for giblet gravy. Prepare gravy. Carve turkey, discarding skin. Serve turkey and dressing with gravy.

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Nut Fudge


2 cups sugar

1 cup water

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped or grated

1 cup chopped toasted nuts


1. Prepare a 9x9 by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a large saucepan combine the sugar and the water over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved.

3. Allow the mixture to boil for one minute, then stir in the condensed milk. Insert a candy thermometer and cook the mixture to 235 degrees, stirring frequently and washing down the sides of the pan occasionally with a wet pastry brush to prevent crystallization.

4. Once the candy reaches 235, remove the pan from the heat and set it aside to cool for 15 minutes. Do not stir it during this time, or you will form sugar crystals and the fudge will be grainy!

5. After 15 minutes, add the grated chocolate and stir to melt the chocolate.

6. Using a wooden spoon, beat the fudge vigorously until it thickens and begins to lose its gloss. (Alternately, you can use an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment to beat the fudge. If you use a mixer, watch it carefully as it is easy to overbeat and turn the fudge hard and grainy.)

7. Once the fudge begins to thicken and set up, quickly stir in the nuts and pour the fudge into the prepared pan. Allow it to set at room temperature until firm, about 3 hours or overnight.

8. After the fudge is set, cut it into small 1-inch squares to serve. Store remaining fudge in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week, or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Bring fudge to room temperature before serving.
