No recipe image available.An exceptional homemade bread stuffing for your holiday bird complete with cooked and chopped turkey giblets, celery, onion, apple, fresh sage, thyme and cranberries.

Recipe Ingredients:

8 cups soft bread crumbs
1 pound turkey giblets
3 tablespoons butter
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 apples, peeled, cored and diced
4 teaspoons minced fresh sage
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1/2 cup cranberries, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Spread bread crumbs on a cookie sheet, and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toasted.
