This old-fashioned Southern giblet dressing includes hard-boiled eggs. The broth from cooking the giblets is used to moisten the dressing. It's a bread dressing, but part cornbread may be used in the mixture.

What You'll Need

  • Giblets from 1 turkey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup celery (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 8 cups dry breadcrumbs (about 14 slices of bread)
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt (or celery salt)
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. In a saucepan, combine giblets (not the liver) and enough water to cover and salt.
  2. Cover and simmer for about 2 hours, until tender.
  3. Add liver; cover and simmer for 25 minutes longer. Cool giblets and broth slightly.
  4. Remove and chop giblets; set aside and reserve 1 cup of the broth.
  5. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat; cook onion and celery until tender; combine with bread crumbs, chopped eggs, chopped giblets, seasoned salt, poultry seasoning, and pepper. Add reserved broth, tossing lightly to moisten.
  1. Spoon into a buttered 2-quart baking dish. Cover tightly and bake at 350 F for 40 to 45 minutes. May also be cooked in the bird - it is enough to stuff a 10 to 12-pound turkey.
