Roasted Turkey Recipe
PREP: 15 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 turkey, thawed
  • 1/4 pound margarine
  • salt
  • pepper
  • poultry seasoning
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
Directions
Thaw turkey for four to five days in the refrigerator. Take the neck out of the cavity of the turkey. Remove the paper packaging with the liver, gizzard, etc. from the hole where the turkey's neck and head used to be. Wash turkey with cold water. Pat the turkey dry with paper towels. Place turkey on aluminum foil that is large enough to wrap completely around it. Melt half a stick of margarine and brush the turkey with it.

Place in an extra large deep pan with a rack. Do not put a lid on it. The turkey will baste itself. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes per pound.

Stuffing with Sausage Recipe
PREP: 1.5 hours

READY IN: 2 hours
Servings:
Change Servings
Ingredients
  • 12 cups half inch cubed bread (can use mixture of white and wheat), approximately a 1 lb. loaf
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 3/4 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped celery (4 to 5 stalks)
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups turkey/chicken broth or stock
Directions
  • Cut bread into 1/2 inch cubes. Allow bread cubes to set out overnight to dry or bake in an oven at 275° F for approximately 20 minutes or until cubes are dry.
  • Fry ground sausage and crumble into small pieces. Drain grease and set crumbled sausage aside.
  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and celery and cook until onions begin to soften and turn a light golden brown. The celery should still be slightly crunchy.
  • Remove the onions and celery from the heat and add the sage, salt and pepper.
  • Combine the bread cubes together with the onion and celery mixture and sausage in a large bowl and stir until the ingredients are well mixed.
  • Begin adding the broth or stock gradually. Only add enough liquid to moisten the stuffing enough for it to hold together. Begin by adding 1 cup or less.
  • When adding liquid, remember that the eggs still need to be added, which will add a little moisture also. Taste test the stuffing to see if it is properly seasoned before adding the eggs.
  • Add more seasoning if necessary after taste testing. When stuffing is properly seasoned, add the beaten eggs and stir until they are well distributed.
  • If necessary, more liquid can be added after the eggs are added to further moisten the stuffing but it should not be tasted again until it is cooked properly.
  • If the stuffing is going to be cooked in the cavity of the turkey, leave it drier than if cooking in a separate baking dish. It will take on additional moisture from the turkey's juices as it cooks.
  • If cooking the stuffing in a turkey or chicken, place the stuffing in the cavity and roast according to the turkey cooking instructions. The stuffing must reach 165° F through to the center before serving.
  • If baking in a separate baking dish, cover with foil and bake at 350° F for 45 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 20 minutes of cooking time. Be sure the dressing reaches 165° F before serving.

Ingredients
  • PIE CRUST:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (chilled)
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • 5 tablespoons ice water
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • MERINGUE TOPPING:
  • 3 egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
Directions
CRUST:
  • See the Single Pie Crust recipe for instructions on preparing the crust for this pie.
  • Bake pie crust for approximately 30 minutes, according to Single Pie Crust directions before adding the filling.
FILLING:
  • In a medium size saucepan, add the milk, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks. Stir ingredients until blended, and then over medium heat bring this mixture to a boil and cook until thick.
  • Stir while the mixture is heating to prevent burning on the bottom of the pan. Once the mixture has boiled or thickened, remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • When thoroughly mixed, pour the mixture& into the baked pie crust. Set aside while making the meringue.
MERINGUE TOPPING:
  • Allow egg whites to become room temperature. Beat egg whites on high until they form a soft peak. While continuing to beat, add in the salt and then add the powdered sugar a couple of tablespoons at a time.
  • Beat until the meringue forms stiff peaks. Add cream of tartar and beat just enough to mix thoroughly. Do not over beat.
  • Spoon the meringue on top of the pie filling and spread evenly over the pie, making sure it is spread so that it is touching the crust around all the edges. Make small peaks in the meringue to give it a finished appearance.
  • Place the pie into an oven preheated to 350°F. Bake until meringue is lightly browned, approximately 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.

Stovetop Pot Roast Recipe

Container: Dutch oven or very large covered skillet
Servings:
Change Servings
Ingredients
  • 3 pounds beef roast (chuck, blade, rump)
  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 1 pound carrots
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 tablespoons canola or other oil
  • 1 cup dry red wine (substitute tomato juice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 1 inch piece stick cinnamon (optional)
Directions
  • Trim off any large pieces of surface fat.  Mix together salt, pepper, paprika and turmeric and  rub this all over the meat.
  • In a dutch oven or large skillet with a domed lid, heat (medium-high) 2 tablespoons canola or other oil and brown the meat. Add more oil if needed.  Don't rush this step as browning is important for a rich deep flavor.
  • Reduce the heat and add 1 cup dry red wine (or tomato juice) and 1 cup water, the bay leaves, and, if using, the cinnamon stick. Regulate the heat to maintain a slow simmer. Cover the pot.
  • Scrub or peel potatoes and carrots and cut into large pieces. If using egg-sized or smaller potatoes, leave them whole. Cut the onions into large chunks.
  • After the meat has cooked for an hour, turn it over and add the cut up vegetables. If the vegetables don't all fit in your pan, remove some of the cooking liqiud to a second pan and cook some of the vegetables in it. Continue to simmer, covered, until the meat is tender, about an hour and a half.  The actual time will depend on the size and shape of the meat.
  • When the meat is done, remove meat and vegetables to a warmed platter and cover loosely to keep warm while you prepare the pan juices. To thicken, raise the heat and boil down the liquid to your desired consistency, or remove 1/2 cup pan juice and thoroughly mix with 1/4th cup flour. Whisk this back into the pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Correct the seasoning, if necessary.
  • Slice the meat across the grain, arrange with the vegetables and drizzle with some of the pan juice. Serve, with the remaining juice in a separate bowl.

Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package peanut butter chips, 12 oz.
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 package miniature marshmallows, 10 oz.
  • 1 16 oz. jar of dry roasted peanuts
Directions
  • Add the margarine and peanut butter chips to a medium sauce pan and heat until they have melted together. Stir as they are melting to combine evenly.
  • Remove from the heat and add sweetened condensed milk. Stir until well blended.
  • Stir the miniature marshmallows into the mixture.
  • Divide the jar of peanuts into thirds and evenly spread 1/3 on the bottom of the baking pan.
  • Stir 1/3 into the mixture above.
  • Spread mixture on top of the peanuts in the bottom of the baking pan. Carefully press the mixture evenly into the pan.
  • Sprinkle the remaining peanuts on top. After they are evenly distributed, press them slightly into the bar mixture so they stick to the bars.
  • Place in the refrigerator to store. To serve, cut into bars that are approximately 1" x 2 1/2" in size.
