  • 1 to 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 to 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • Pepper to taste
  • Broth or milk to moisten


Combine all ingredients and place in turkey cavity. Pour some dressing around the turkey and roast until dressing is lightly brown. Baste turkey occasionally while baking.
