My Nephew's Famous Holiday Turkey Stuffing
November 17, 2016
"This is my nephews turkey stuffing that is enjoyed at his house when celebrating the Holidays. This stuffing (also known as dressing) is delicious! According to my nephew the recipe was originated from a Good Morning America/Emeril Legasse top contest winner stuffing recipe submitted by Hollie Dorethy from Texas. She combined her Southern way of cooking with her husbands Italian roots. Many different recipes were submitted, but this particular one is what swooned the judges. It is a marvelous tasting stuffing!"

Heat oil in large skillet on medium. Sauté pancetta for 2 minutes.
Add onion and celery and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook another 3 minutes.
Mix together breads and 3/4 cup toasted pine nuts in a large mixing bowl. Add cheeses and cooked sausage to the breads. Mix together with the dried seasonings.
Add sautéed veggies with any pan drippings.
Slowly add broth and stir until mixed thoroughly. The consistency should not be soupy, but very moist. If not, add more broth.
Test for saltiness and add a dash more if needed.
Place in an extra deep 9-inch-by-13-inch greased pan.
Dot the top with the cubed butter and cover with foil. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes or until slightly crusted on the edges.
Top with remaining toasted pine nuts and chopped fresh sage. Add shaved cheese just before serving.
NOTE: We've enjoyed this stuffing (aka: dressing) both stuffed inside the turkey and baked separately as instructed in the method above.
