4 medium onions
1 lb. pork sausage
2 pkg. (6 oz) herb stuffing mix
1 pkg. (15 oz) golden raisins
1 cup pecans halved
6 celery ribs, diced
1/4 tsp each, basil, oregano, curry powder, caraway seeds, pultry seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper
1 turkey 12-14 lbs.

Slice two of the onions and set a side. Chop the remaining onions. In a large skillet brown sausage and chopped onions. Add herb packet from stuffing mixes plus raisins, pecans, celery and seasonings and simmer for 10 minutes. Add stuffing mixes and broth and mix well, cooking and stirring for about 5 minutes.

Place reserved onions and 6-7 cups of stuffing inside turkey. Place the remaining stuffing in a greased baking dish and refrigerate. Skewer the turkey opening and tie the drumsticks together. Place the meat thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh without touching bone.

Place the turkey on a rack in a roasting pan, breast side up. Bake uncovered at 325 for 4-4-1/2 hours, or until meat thermometer reads 185 degrees. Baste often with melted butter. When the turkey begins to brown, baste if needed and cover with foil until time to serve. Allow turkey to cool for 15 minutes before carving.

Remove the stuffing from the refrigerator and bake covered for about 1 hour, then uncover and bake an additional 10 more minutes.
