Ingredients

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350-degrees F.

Wash spinach (trim stems if using fresh bunches), and drain well. In a food processor, chop spinach to about the size of confetti. Put in colander in workable amounts to squeeze out all possible liquid.

Over medium heat, brown the ground beef and sausage, about 15 minutes. Add chopped celery, onion and garlic. Continue cooking until vegetables are translucent, about 5 minutes. Be sure to drain all grease.

In a large mixing bowl, combine chopped spinach with cooked meat and mix thoroughly. Add 1/2 cup of broth. Season the mixture with cinnamon, cloves, allspice, salt, and pepper. Add drained olives. Spoon into 2 1/2 quart casserole dish and cover with lid. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Cook's Note

When using the dressing to stuff a turkey, subtract 1/2 cup of chicken broth from the recipe. Roast the turkey accordingly. This recipe came from Patrick's grandmother (of French descent). Originally the dressing was used to stuff a turkey, but has become so popular Patrick can't find a turkey big enough to hold the quantity his family demands!
