  • 4 cup Dry bread cubes; (3 slices)
  • 1 Onion; chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove; (1/2 tsp pwdr)
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Dried marjoram; (or oregano)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, toss to mix well. Stuff into a 10-pound turkey or 4 cornish hens.

Notes: May be covered and baked 30 min. in casserole 350° to 375° F oven to avoid added fat. Cook the turkey with a chunk of raw onion in the cavity. Use only 1/2 cup liquid if you prefer a dry dressing. Or, whole lemons, orange or tangarines. Prick fruit skins several times.

Whole garlic cloves, don't peel. Slices of fresh ginger root. Handfuls of fresh herbs; sage, rosemary or thyme or 2 tbsp dry herbs. Fresh rosemary sprigs with orange wedges or sage with apple slices.
