Roasted Turkey Dinner With Stuffing


MAINS: 1 . 14 LB. fresh butterball turkey, 2 loaves of day old bread,1 teaspoon sage,1 teaspoon poultry seasoning ,half a teaspo
half a teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of pepper,
2 eggs, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 fresh chilli,1 teaspoon of hot madras masala,
quarter of an onion, 3 stalks of celery,3 cloves of finely grated garlic and a half pound of butter


PREPARATION: Take turkey out of fridge about an hour and half before cooking so that it can be of room temperature before cooking. Once it is room temerature wash throughly before stuffing.
STUFFING PREP: In a small bowl put the sage, poultry seasoning, salt, pepper and masala
Grate garlic very finely.
Chop chilli pepper, celery stalks and onions very finely
Melt butter .
Pour chicken broth in a measuring cup
Crack the eggs put in a bowl and mix till its blended well.
Break bread into small bite size pieces and put into a large mixing bowl.
MIXING AND FUSING: Take all the above ingredients and add to the bowl the bread is and mix well till all ingredients are bonded together
FUN PART:Open the back cavity :) and slowly insert the stuffing into the turkey. Make sure that you don’t push the stuffing to hard, just gently.
When you have finished with that process close the cavity with couple of skewers so that the stuffing does not run on you when it’s cooking:)
Once you have stuffed the bird place it in a roasting pan big enough for the size of turkey you are cooking. Add salt and pepper to the outside of the turkey and gently rub some Olive oil . The oil will help to crisp the skin of the tukey MMMMM
COOKING: Turn the oven to 350degrees F. Once oven has reached its desired temperature, place the roasting pan with the turkey in the middle of the oven and let it slowly cook
We use the standard rule! 15 minutes per pound. We had a 14 lb. turkey so 14x15=210 minutes 60 minutes in and hour 210 minutes divided by 60 minutes 3.5 hours approximately. Some ovens vary so please check after 3 hours of cooking.
Once turkey is cooked nothing more to do but take the lovely stuffing out:) Take the turkey of the pan make your gravy, carve the turkey give thanks and enjoy!
Measurements are all approximate as well the cooking times .Please gauge your cooking time according to your oven cooking time.
You can serve you turkey with any side dishes of your choice. I usually prefer steamed carrots, mashed potatoes and sautéed French beans garnished with almonds:) Happy thanks giving you all!



Quissy and I hosted this year’s thanksgiving dinner. We both agreed to have all our family at our place to show our appreciation to all of them for their support, encouragement and love that they showed us all year long.

This year’s thanksgiving was very emotional and very trying for everyone .Earlier this year we lost Quissy’s mom to cancer.

She was the core, heart and soul of the family. We miss her very much and hope that she is now pain free and resting in peace.

Quissy and I were very sad that she wasn’t with us, yet excited to have everyone at our place.

The morning began by preparing the turkey and stuffing for our dinner. We both contributed with our ideas towards the preparation of the stuffing. Mine mostly LOL.

Turkey went in the oven and then we prepared our sides. Time just flew by and soon family arrived. We had few cocktails and lots of reminiscing about the good times in the past.

Soon it was time to take the turkey out, carve it, give thanks, and say a little prayer.

Chow time :)
