In the spirit of the upcoming holiday, I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite recipes for stuffing. It's my grandmother's recipe and my mom has always made it for the holidays. I usually make it too, but I'm not going to cook this year. We're taking the easy way out and ordering dinner from Whole Foods. I think I can get a free pass since we have a newborn, right?!
The picture above is from last year, and since I won't be making it this year, I don't have my usual step by step photos. I think you can manage without them, though!
I seriously love this stuffing so much that I eat it cold the next day!
1 loaf white bread (torn into bits and left out overnight so it's slightly stale)
8 eggs, separated
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
3 small celery stalks, diced
1 large onion, chopped
1 stick of butter
1 15oz can of chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, add salt, pepper and poultry seasoning to the torn bread. Squeeze the bread with chicken broth until moist, then beat egg yolks in and set aside. Melt butter in a pan and sauté onions and celery; set aside and let cool. When cool, add to bread mixture. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold egg whites into bread mixture. Spoon into turkey or bake in a casserole dish on 350 until firm.
So, what is your favorite recipe to make for Thanksgiving dinner? Are there any special family recipes that you make each year?
