It’s the most wonderful time of the year! ♫♪♫
By that I mean fall+, specifically October-December. No more sweating your butt off(mid February I’ll be begging for summer again), leaves changing to beautiful colours, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! Thanksgiving is definitely my favourite holiday… bring on the turkey and stuffing and birthdays! Hanging out with family is pretty cool too…
This year we hosted thanksgiving dinner for the in-laws at our house and cooked dinner for my family a couple days before. They were our practice run for the dinner at our house, we were definitely spoiled there, having two stoves and some helping hands throughout the day.
If it wasn’t for the rush of getting dinner served, I would have a turkey post too. My other half has become quite the turkey cook. That being said this is his stuffing recipe, it’s really easy and so good!
Two years ago we bought loaves of stuffing bread and used that, last year we bought pre-cut bits of bread and this year we opted for loaves of French bread, with the nice crispy crust and soft insides, we’ve found this to be the best so far. It only took 1 loaf of bread to fill our 25 lbs turkey, and we only made stuffing in the turkey. I know some people like it cooked outside of the turkey, which is totally doable!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 loaf of french bread, cubed
- 4 celery stocks, chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped, fresh parsley
- 1 large onion, diced
- approx. 1 tbsp of chopped
- salt & pepper to taste (about a tsp of each?)
- 1 cup of melted butter
& Here is what you do:
- Combine herbs in a small bowl
- In a large bowl, toss you onions, celery and bread together
- Add herbs to the bowl and then pour butter over top
- Mix everything together until it looks good
- Put all that good stuff in your uncooked Turkey and cook with the Turkey
**If like your stuffing with a little bit of crisp: after turkey is cooked remove stuffing and place in an oven safe dish. Place oven on a low broil and place in there for about 5 minutes. I like to keep an eye on it, once the top looks nice and golden it’s done.
