Roast Turkey with Apple, Sausage, with Herb Stuffing 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Traditional roast turkey is still the dish of choice for most holidays and evokes images of celebrations with family and friends. This is the season for enjoying turkey.
Health Benefits of Turkey is that is a lean meat and is a very good source of protein. A four ounce serving provides 65% of the daily value for protein, along with 11% of the daily value for saturated fat, about half the amount of saturated fat found in red meat. The structure of the human body is built on protein. We use animal and plant sources of protein for our amino acids and rearrange the nitrogen to make the pattern of amino acids we require. Turkey is a very good source of selenium, B vitamin and niacin.


Ingredients:
6.5 Kg (14 lb) turkey*
4 sprigs fresh rosemary and/or thyme

Stuffing - ingredients

125 g (1/4 lb) bulk turkey sausage
1.5 L (6 cups) day-old whole-wheat bread cubes (about 9 slices)
125 mL (1/2 cup) chopped celery
125 mL (1/2 cup) chopped onion
2 small apples, peeled, chopped (McIntosh in the fall; Golden Delicious in winter)
25 mL (2 tbsp) each chopped fresh sage and basil, (or 2 mL/1/2 tsp each dried)
7 mL (1 1/2 tsp) dried savory
10 mL (2 tsp) chopped fresh thyme or oregano
2 mL (1/2 tsp) or less each salt and freshly ground pepper


Directions:
Remove neck and giblets from body cavity of turkey. Discard gizzard and heart.
Cover and refrigerate neck and liver for gravy.
Rinse turkey under cold running water; dry skin and cavities with paper towels.
In small nonstick skillet, create stuffing by cooking sausage over medium heat for 5 to 7minutes or until no longer pink, breaking up meat with fork. In large bowl, combine sausage, bread, celery, onion, apples, sage, basil, savory, thyme, salt and pepper.
Loosely stuff neck and body cavity with stuffing. Fold neck skin over cavity and skewer to back.
Secure legs by tying together with string. Lift wings and fold behind back or tie to sides of turkey with string.
Place rosemary and/or thyme sprigs between body of turkey and each leg and wing.
Place turkey, breast side up, on rack in roasting pan. Cover with loose tent of lightly greased foil, shiny side down, leaving sides open.
Roast in 160°C (325°F) oven for 3 3/4 to 4 hours or until juices run clear when turkey is pierced and thermometer inserted into thigh reads 82°C (180°F).
Remove foil for last 30 minutes of cooking so turkey can brown.
Remove from oven and let stand, covered with foil, for 20 to 30 minutes before carving.

Wellness Tip
The Link Between Smell and Food Choice
If you hold your nose while eating chocolate, you might have trouble identifying the chocolate flavor. This is because taste and smell are closely linked. Smell can account for up to 90% of your ability to detect the flavor of some foods. Those with a decline in the ability to smell due to allergies, medications or aging often eat foods containing higher amounts of salt or sugar. Consider using more spices like basil, cumin or chili powder to increase flavor and offset a decreased sense of smell.

Healthy Whole Wheat Pancakes Recipe
Category: Breakfast
Description: This is the healthiest pancake recipe that my kids REALLY chow down on. Now, I will admit that this recipe has literally evolved over time. Therefore, my children didn't notice the small healthy changes I made to it each time I made them.
This recipe calls for one egg or egg substitute. Egg Substitute is listed in many low fat or low cholesterol recipes as an alternative to whole eggs. Egg substitute looks a lot like beaten eggs, but what’s it made of?
Well, most egg substitute products—fresh, frozen or powdered—contain mostly egg whites, so if you have an egg allergy, these are not suitable as egg alternatives. But egg substitute is an excellent alternative to eggs if you want to cut your intake of fat and cholesterol, which are concentrated in the egg’s yolk.
