Angelique's New Age Dressing

Angelique's New Age Dressing
8 - 10 Servings
Ingredients
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 tablespoon poultry season, divided
1 – 2 teaspoons sage, divided
1 tablespoon onion powder, divided
1 tablespoon garlic powder, divided
1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
1 large onion, diced
1 large bell pepper, diced
3 celery stalks, sliced
1 cup chopped, parsley - optional
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 – 14 ounce bag Pepperidge Farm Cornbread Stuffing
1 – 14 ounce bag Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Stuffing
48+ ounces vegetable broth

Method
Heat the oil in a large sauce pan or wok over medium heat.  Add ground turkey and 1 teaspoon each of the following seasonings:  poultry, sage, onion powder and garlic powder.  Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and mix thoroughly while mashing and separating the ground turkey.  Saute for 5 minutes while stirring occasionally, do not let turkey brown. 
Add the diced onions, peppers, celery and minced garlic continue sautéing until onions are tender.
Add the stuffing packages, vegetable broth and remaining salt, mix well then add all remaining seasonings and mix thoroughly.  If dressing is too dry, add more liquid, ½ cup at a time, taste for flavor.  You may have to add more poultry seasoning or sage.  Transfer dressing to a baking dish, cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven 30 minutes.
Dressing can be made a day ahead then baked or stuffed in the turkey the following day.
For those of you who like to use sausage, never fear!  The sage is what gives sausage its taste.  So use it generously.  
You can also turn this into a vegetarian dressing simply by using vegetable crumbles.  Your guests will never know the difference.
If you like it sweeter, trade out the Pepperidge Farm Cornbread Stuffing for a box of Jiffy Cornbread mix.  
Just make sure you add a pinch of sage and a pinch of poultry seasoning to the mix before baking the cornbread.
