This recipe comes from my Gramma, who was one of the best cooks I ever knew. My mom always made the traditional bread stuffing, which was okay, but when it was my Gramma Caruso's turn to have Thanksgiving, I couldn't wait to smell and eat her stuffing. Just like her, it was wonderful! Happy Thanksgiving, Gramma--I miss you!

Ingredients

Directions

Heat oil in skillet, add onions and cook until slightly tender. Add all the ground meat and incorporate with fork. Add salt and pepper and garlic. Cook until half done, then add mushrooms, and continue cooking until meat is done. Do not drain.

Put in large mixing bowl and add cooked rice. Toss, add bread crumbs, cheese, milk, and egg. Sorry guys, now ya gotta use your hands. Mix together, again add salt and pepper to taste. When fully mixed, add your chicken broth or water, more if you want a moist stuffing.  

There should be plenty to stuff your turkey, plus a full baking dish on the side. I put the baking dish in the last hour, top with 2 tablespoons butter and cover.

This recipe was created by a contestant during a cooking competition. It has not been tested for home use.
