Does anyone have a good stuffing recipe?
  • nancyburnett October 2010

    We'd like to make our Thanksgiving dinner from as many local products as possible, which actually shouldn't be too difficult. What we're in need of is a yummy meatless stuffing recipe that uses local ingredients. Does anyone have one? Also, are some days-old home-baked breads better than others for making stuffing?

    unfortunately, our family's traditional recipe involves sausage as a main ingredient -- but i'll be curious to see what you find out!

    I usually use sausage as well, but it could easily be omitted. I use stale bread broken into pieces, poultry spices, onion, celery, apple and cranberries (I would saute briefly the onion and celery); moisten with broth and lots of melted butter. If you don't have a turkey, put the stuffing into a 13 x 9 pan and cover with foil. Bake for an hour at least, and take the foil off and let the top brown for 10-15 minutes. You could also use cornbread instead of regular bread.

    I use this delicious veggie stuffing recipe: 1/2c chopped onion, 3/4c chopped celery, 4T butter, 2c cold crumbled cornbread (I make mine from scratch), 3 c whole wheat toast cubes, 1t salt & dash pepper, 1t poultry seasoning & dash sage, 1/2 veg. broth, 1 egg well beaten. Saute onion & celery in butter until tender. Add to cornbread & bread cubes in large pan. Combine seasonings, sprinkle over stuffing mixture & toss lightly. Pour combined broth & egg over stuffing; toss. Stuff bird or place under thin chicken breast.

    Yum, that sounds great! Actually, both stuffing recipes sound tasty (although I probably would omit the sausage from the first one). I'll have to have my family weigh in on which we''ll try. Thanks so much for your suggestions!
