Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Traditional Sage Dressing

Simple and easy, this traditional dressing uses no "odd" ingredients or hard to identify food, making it popular for more traditional menus. We do not recommend ever stuffing a turkey, but if you must this recipe can be used. But please consider our suggestion below for getting the flavor and moistness that some people prefer rather than risking sickness or at the very least an overcooked turkey.

1 cup melted butter, divided
3 cups chopped onions
3 cups minced celery stalks and leaves
16 slices white bread, dried and broken into small pieces
1 cup minced fresh parsley
6 tablespoons minced fresh sage
Freshly ground black pepper
1 egg
About 2 cups chicken broth

Saute the onions and celery in 4 tablespoons butter until soft and set aside to cool. In a large bowl, toss the dried bread, sage, parsley, salt, and pepper. Add the onion mixture along with the remaining melted butter to the bread mixture. Beat the egg and add to the mixture. Toss until well mixed. Add the broth slowly while tossing mixture to moisten thoroughly, making sure to not make the stuffing soupy. Spoon into a greased casserole and bake at 350-450 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown. If desired, spoon some of the turkey drippings over the stuffing while baking for that "baked in a turkey" flavor and moistness.

Makes 8 servings.
