Creole-Stuffed Turkey

4 cups cubed corn bread
2 cups cubed crustless day-old whole wheat bread
1 cup chopped fully cooked ham
3/4 cup smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped celery
3 tablespoons finely diced onion
2-1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 to 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1 turkey (8 to 10 pounds)

In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients; add enough broth to moisten. Just before baking, loosely stuff the turkey. Skewer turkey openings; tie drumsticks together. Place breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 325 for 3-1/2 to 4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180 for the turkey and 165 for the stuffing, basting occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Cover turkey and let stand for 20 minutes before removing stuffing and carving turkey. Makes 6-8 servings.

You may substitute the following spices instead of the creole seasonings: 1 teaspoon each paprika and garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon each cayenne pepper, dried thyme and ground cumin.)

Note: Stuffing may be baked in a greased 2-qt. covered baking dish at 325 for 70 minutes (uncover during the last 10 minute). Stuffing makes about 6 cups.

Holiday Truffles

3 packages (12 ounces each) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
2-1/4 cups sweetened condensed milk, divided
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1-1/2 pounds white candy coating, melted
3/4 pound dark chocolate candy coating, melted
1/3 cup crushed peppermint candies
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/3 cup flaked coconut
Paste food coloring, optional

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt one package of chips; stir until smooth. Add 3/4 cup milk; mix well. Stir in orange extract. Repeat twice, adding peppermint extract to one portion and almond extract to the other.

Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes or until firm enough to shape into 1-in. balls. Place on three separate waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill for 1-2 hours or until firm.

Dip orange-flavored truffles twice in white candy coating; place on waxed paper to harden. Dip peppermint-flavored truffles in dark chocolate coating; sprinkle with peppermint candies. Dip almond-flavored truffles in dark chocolate, then sprinkle with almonds or coconut. If desired, tint white coating with food coloring; drizzle over white truffles. Makes about 7 dozen.
