My husband's Polish American Grandma was known as "Busia" by my older daughter before she passed away a couple of years ago. The title "Busia" was at her request.
My husband and his family have always loved her cooking and her Thanksgiving Day stuffing was no exception. It's not the stuffing I'm used to but that's the beauty of family, each one has it's own traditions.
And I still make it in memory of her. She was a wonderful woman and was always very kind to me so deserves to be remembered.
1 loaf of Bread torn apart (she preferred white bread)
1/2 an Onion, peeled, washed, finely diced
1 rib of Celery, washed and finely diced
2 cloves of Garlic, peeled, washed, finely diced
handful of Curly Parsley
1 Turkey Liver, well chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chicken Broth, roughly 2 cups
Tear apart the bread. Add all ingredients and mix together. Add enough chicken broth to make the dish moist.
Stuff the bird and use one end of the bread to close the opening.
I took this photo after we were done eating, sorry, I was too hungry beforehand...
Note: You could add marjoram to this. You can also use leeks or shallots instead of an onion. It's really just whatever you prefer.
This is a great dish to have your kids help. Have them tear apart the bread and curly parsley while you cut the ingredients. They can also add the cut up onions and celery. My toddler helped with this recipe this year and was extremely dumna (proud).
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!
