Grilled Brown Sugar Rubbed Turkey Breast

Grilled Brown Sugar Rubbed Turkey Breast from 101 Cooking For TwoTurkey on the grill. This has been on my cooking “bucket list” for several years. But I’m “cooking for two” so a whole turkey is out of the question and even a frozen turkey breast is too big plus they are packed with salt water. So a smile came on my face when I found a half turkey breast at our local market that appeared to be fresh and even more of a smile when the butcher told me it was indeed a fresh breast that had not been injected with anything. It became mine…

Sausage-Bread Turkey Stuffing


The family staple at turkey times. Usually made in a double or even a triple batch.  For many years it went in the bird. Now it is baked in a pan for safety but still a great treat at holiday gatherings.

Rating

This is a 5 for the entire family. I’m not a dressing person so I will give a 4.5.

Notes: Add turkey broth or meat from the giblets if you want.

Start by ripping about 30 slices of bread into small pieces (about 2 loafs). Dice 4 stalks of celery to make about 2 cups and 1 large onion.

Prepare spices if using fresh. 1 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves if dried or 3 times that if fresh. 1 1/2 teaspoon ground sage dried or double if fresh. And parsley 1/3 cup dry or 1 cup fresh.

In a Dutch oven over medium heat cook 2 lbs sausage (Bob Evans preferred) until brown. With a slotted spoon, remove the sausage to a medium bowl and set aside.

Pour all but 1/4 cup of the drippings from the dutch oven. Cook the onion and celery in the dutch over until tender (abt 10 mins) stirring occasionally.

In a separate bowl mix 4 eggs slightly beaten, 1/2 cup milk, the parsley, thyme and sage, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

Mix all together in a large bowl but reserve about a 1/3 of the bread and add it in slowly at the end of mixing to get a completely covered but very dry mix. You may not need all the bread.

Place in a oven safe pan. You can refrigerate at this point. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour until well browned.
