2 cups Hickory Smoked Turkey (approx. 1lb) - chopped fine.

Southern Style - Old Fashioned Cornbread Turkey Dressing

First start with fresh corn bread, using your own favorite egg bread recipe.

4 cups crumbled corn bread
4 1/2 cups natural juices (stock)
4 eggs
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion

Pour hot stock over corn bread, add salt, pepper, chopped onions, and celery - blend. Beat eggs; mix thoroughly as this helps dressing to be fluffy. Bake in a preheated oven at 400` for 25 to 30 minutes. This is the recipe we use in our Bates House of Turkey Restaurant.

Cooked giblets may be added and giblet broth used as liquid in stuffing, if desired. To cook giblets: cover neck, liver, and gizzard with water, season with salt and pepper, simmer 1 to 2 hours, until gizzard is fork tender, Giblets may be cut or diced and added to gravy for that special southern flavor.

Southern Turkey Gravy

6 tablespoons drippings

6 tablespoons flour
4 cups liquid - broth or water

Remove the turkey to warm platter and keep hot. Pour drippings into bowl, leaving the entire brown residue in the roasting pan. Let the fat rise to top of the drippings. Skim off all fat and measure amount needed for gravy, return to pan. The meat juice under the fat should be used as part of the liquid for the gravy. Place roasting pan with fat over very low heat. Blend flour and lukewarm water and add to fat all at once. Stir constantly until thickened. Add chopped giblets (gizzard, neck and liver), stir until blended. Simmer about 5 minutes. Use salt and pepper to taste.
