Turkey-Berry Stuffing (Adapted from "Taste of Home" recipe)

1 pound ground turkey
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 eggs, beaten
1-1/4 cups chicken broth
4 cups seasoned stuffing croutons
3/4 cups fresh cranberries, halved
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

In a large skillet, cook the turkey, celery and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, combine eggs, broth, and stuffing. Let stand for five minutes. Stir in turkey mixture, cranberries, and red pepper flakes.

Gently press mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until top is lightly browned and stuffing it heated through. Serve with a smile on your face, you gorgeous minx, because you just made stuffing like a boss!
