I just wanted to say that this is the recipe that I grew up with and loved, but my mom used to add boiled and cut up chicken gizzards and 2 beaten eggs to make the stuffing more fluffy. Yummy! PS I fry my celery and onion in a bit of butter with some fresh garlic before adding to the stuffing along with the juice that I got from boiling the neck and gizzards. Happy holidays everyone from debbie in Kendallville, IN Read More

This is the same recipe my mom made when I was young. I have made it for many years from memory. Thank you for submitting a wonderful recipe that brings back days long forgotten! I have never cooked the giblets with the butter but have boiled them in the chicken broth. I will try it the other way and see which is better. Read More

This is exactly how my father in law made his stuffing only he added minced garlic. And for those who don't use the giblets in the stuffing you are MISSING OUT. Read More

This is the same exact recipe that my mom got from my dad's mom and made it for us when I was a kid which I learned how to make it too and with the same ingredients we use for our turkey stuffing but the only difference is we boiled the giblets in water and added 2 more turkey necks to it. when done then we take all the meat off the bone put it in food processor and put in bowl with bread and then giblets get put into a food processor and then to the large bowl with bite size bread pieces put it all on top and 1 stick of melted butter and the celery and onion get put in the food processor too and put in the bowl with salt pepper and poultry seasoning then you use the stock from the giblets to get the dressing moist to your liking and stir altogether and stuff turkey the next day with it(I used to eat just the stuffing the way it was and my mom used to yell at me and say leave some for the turkey) and left over stock is the basting for the turkey Read More

I used this stuffing to stuff my first turkey and it turned out quite well. My signifigant other quite liked it I liked the taste but found the texture of the chopped giblets to be a little unappealing. If I used this recipie again I think I would opt to grind the giblets and I might not fry them in butter first. Read More

First time stuffing maker here...but no one would have known that by the way this recipe turned out! I did add some sage and thyme and about 1/2 cup more broth. Mom always added the giblets to her stuffing so was surprised when others found this unusual! Great recipe! Read More

Finally I made some giblet stuffing for my husband. He was thrilled and he also enjoyed it as did I very much. Next time I think I might add a bit more celery and onions though. I also used a bit more than 1 cup of broth. I baked it separately in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes covered. Great dish! Read More
