This recipe came from James Villas' cookbook, "My Mother's Southern Kitchen," and he attributed it to the old cook at St Martin's Episcopal Church in Charlotte. I've made a few minor adjustments, and think it's perfect food for a rainy day! I serve it with a salad to make it feel a little less artery-hardening.....
Annie's Turkey Dressing Bake (serves 8)
3 c. packaged herb-seasoned stuffing mix
1 small onion, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
4 c. diced cooked turkey
1 stick butter
1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 c. chicken stock
6 large eggs
Turkey Gravy (your own or purchased)
Mix the stuffing mix, veggies, and poulty seasoning in a bowl, and dump into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Top with the turkey. Make a roux of the flour and butter, add salt, pepper, and stock, bring to a boil. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a bowl. GRADUALLY add the hot stock mixture to the eggs (one cup at a time or you'll have egg drop soup!). Once combined, pour over the turkey mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve with the turkey gravy. Sort of a "heart attack on a plate," but really good stuff!
