I decided to share with you a couple of my holiday secrets. The BIGGIE is my Pepperoni Stuffing recipe. I’m almost famous for it. Even family and friends who can’t join us for Thanksgiving dinner make a special stop at the end of the day to get their “to-go” stuffing. The original recipe was never written down or properly measured, but here is a rough guestimation of what goes into this masterpiece each year.
1 ½ loaves Stale Italian Bread
1 lb diced Pepperoni (cooked)
1 cup minced Onion
½ Bulb Garlic (minced)
¾ cup Celery (minced)
Cooked Giblets (minced)
Olive Oil (to make gooey)
Break bread down into cubes and set aside.
Cook pepperoni, remove from grease.
SautÃ© onion, garlic and celery in pepperoni drippings.

Mash all ingredients together, add seasoning to taste, add olive oil and chicken broth until you get a gooey consistency.
Stuff bird and bake.
Did you miss the Pumpkin Pie Crunch recipe?
Coming soon…. Pink Stuff.
I love how this sounds, Lisa! YUM!
Try adding mozzerella to it too…..My family has been going nuts over this for years. I always have to make extra!
Yummy! time for me to start looking for a turkey on sale.
This sounds really good. Puts a little twist on the stuffing.
I love stuffing! Thanks for sharing!
Pepperoni seems to be good in dang near anything, this must be yummy!
I totally agree – pepperoni is almost as awesome as bacon!
