Vi's (Vincenza's) Meat Stuffing

My mother in law, Vi, was a wonderful cook. She stuffed her turkeys and chickens the same.

Here is what you'll need:

Whole loaf stale white bread, torn into pieces

12 eggs, beaten

1 cup grated Locatelli cheese

4-5 cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 cup dark raisins

3 lbs chopped beef

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup Fresh parsley, chopped

1/4 cup Fresh basil, chopped

1/4 cup cold water


In large bowl, break up the beef, add the bread pieces. Add eggs, cheese, raisins, pignoli nuts, salt and pepper, basil and parsley. 

Slowly add cold water a little at a time for moisture.

In 9 X 13 pan, grease with butter. Add the contents like a cake batter. 

Cover with foil. Place in oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check for doneness. 

To serve, cut into squares. Serve with the turkey.

I assure you, you will make this stuffing all the time once you've tasted it.

This is what your bread crumbs should look like.
