Turkey with White Castle stuffing

For Christmas Craig cooks a turkey with White Castle stuffing.

That's right, he uses White Castle hamburgers. You can find them in the freezer section in the store. Let them thaw completely and tear them into small bits.

Here's a pic of them all torn up.
The recipe........
1 box (six) of frozen White castle hamburgers. (you can use fresh, but take out the pickle)
1 1/2 cups diced celery.
2 cups diced onion,
1/2 bag stuffing mix. (any seasoned type you want)
1/2 teaspoon thyme.
1/2 teaspoon sage.
1/4 teaspoon coarse black pepper.

Mix all the ingredients together.
Use a stuffing bag to make it easier to get the stuffing back out. Stuff the turkey with as much as will fit. Tie off the end of the bag.
For the extra stuffing I make a foil pouch to hold the rest so it will fit in the corner of the oven with the turkey. Make sure to add about 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the stuffing in the pouch to help moisten while cooking. Add the pouch to the oven for the last hour of cooking.
Here's a pic of the turkey, stuffed, seasoned and ready to cook.
If using a roaster pan cover and cook at 325 for recommended time. if using a foil roasting pan, make a tent out of foil and cover, not letting the foil touch the turkey, and cook.
Make whatever side dishes you want. We had scalloped corn and scalloped potatoes.
Enjoy a delicious turkey dinner!
