Grandma Piccirillo's Bread Turkey Stuffing

 Stuffing bread (about 10-12 cups) 3 loves
1 large onion diced
2 large celery stalks diced
10 Tablespoons of butter
Turkey giblets cooked and diced
Parsley 1/4 fresh
1 box of bells  seasoning
1 teaspoon of pepper
 Dash of salt
1-2 cups of  chicken stock

Do this the night before:

Break your bread up the night before and let in sit covered this will dry the bread out. The bread dry out so that when you add the ingredients below it will not be too soft and mushy.  

Put turkey giblets from the turkey and put them in a saucepan and add water and simmer for about an hour.  Once cooked strain the juice and use it for the stuffing.  (You can use the chicken stock or water, but I always use the stock from the giblets.)

In another pan saute 10 tablespoons of melted butter, celery and onion.  Once done add the giblets and mix together well. Refrigerate.

Next day:

Season your bread with the bells seasoning, covering evenly:

Mix the take the giblet mixture and add 1 cup of chicken stock and mix together;

Slowly pour evenly over your bread until bread is coated and soft but not mushy.  Use all of the giblet mixture, add chicken stock as needed.  Once finished seasoning bread.  Stuff your cleaned turkey.

I am sure my sons remember us breaking the bread together as a family and getting the giblets ready.  We made the breaking of the bread a family event.  Nice memories!  Love you all!
