posted by Polar Bear 10-25-101 9:09 AM

For a large turkey (15 to 20 lb)

2 lbs. White bread (home made or a premium commercial brand)
1 med onion, chopped
1 med stalk celery, chopped
4 tsp. Butter
1/4 c chopped parsley
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. Rubbed sage
1 tsp. Ground thyme
1/2 tsp. Black pepper
1/4 tsp. Cayenne
1/4 tsp. Ground bay leaf
2 large eggs
1 c chopped pecans or 1 1/2 c halves)
8 oz. Diced canned pineapple, drained and cut in 1/2-inch dice (halved if using pecan halves)

Toast bread and cut into cubes. Saute onion and celery in butter until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add seasonings and sauté 30 seconds. Toss with bread crumbs, eggs, pecans and pineapple.

These proportions will produce a stuffing that's mostly about the bread, with the additions in a supporting role. If you desire, reduce bread to 1-1/2 lb and double the additions.
