Simple Turkey Stuffing

A rich, pork-based stuffing. Serves: 8-10. Prep Time: ~2hrs.


  • 1 Pound ground pork
  • ~1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Onion (optional)*
  • 3-4 Quart Saucepan with Lid
  • 1 Water to cover Pork
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Sage
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt


  1. Break up the pork into the saucepan. If using fresh onion, stir it into the pork.
  2. Add enough water to submerge the pork. Cover, and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to simmer, cooking the pork for about 1.5 to 2 hours, until pork is thoroughly cooked and water is nearly gone. Depending on the leanness of the pork, the fat can be skimmed off periodically.
  4. Stir in the seasonings (the various Salts, Pepper, and Parsley).
  5. Add enough chicken broth to barely cover the pork (~1/2 Cup).
  6. Add a similar quantity of bread crumbs (~1/2 Cup) and stir until well mixed.
  7. The broth and crumbs can be adjusted to taste - more moist or more dry.
  8. Stuff the turkey with the mixture prior to roasting. Or bake the stuffing separately in a casserole dish, uncovered, for about 35-45 minutes.
