Catnmoos' Bread and Mashed Potato Filling

In the coal region of Pennsylvania, Catnmoos says, we don't call what goes inside a turkey stuffing or dressing, we call it FILLING....maybe for two reasons...because we fill the bird, and because it then fills us!

The surprising nutrition facts are at Calorie Count!

Bread and Mashed Potato Filling


3 sticks of celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 tsp sage
1/2 t garlic powder
2 cups mashed potatoes
two loaves of bread, cubed (approximately 8 cups)


In a large skillet over medium heat, sweat the celery and onion in a stick of butter.  Add in the egg and the cup of milk, stir. Add The seasonings and stir. Stir in the mashed potatoes. Place the cubed bread in a large bowl and gently stir in the heated mixture.

You can either stuff the bird with the mix and roast, or do as Catnmoos does and place the mix in a Pam sprayed pan. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes. Baste the pan with the liquid from the pan that is cooking your turkey or chicken. Always use an instant read thermometer to make sure stuffing is done to about 170 degrees - whether in the bird or out!
