  1. Chop onion into very small pieces (recommend food processor).
  2. Mix all but the bread together in a large bowl.
  3. Zoë and Aidan are best at tearing the bread.
  4. Add bread until it feels right – it’s a Zen thing.
  5. Stuff it all into the turkey’s orifices (neck as well).
  6. Cook until the stuffing reaches 165°F (75°C) at 325°F (165°C). Approximately 4½ hours for a 13lb turkey. Cover breast with foil for last half.
  7. Tip: Any excess stuffing can be cooked separately. Roll into balls if you like it crunchy.



This is better than turkey—“I want it for breakfast”
