We had our Thanksgiving dinner here today, and for the first time we had completely homemade stuffing. I had planned to try making my own stuffing this year, but after working all night I decided I was too tired and told my husband that I was going to buy some boxed stuffing. He decided that he would take on the challenge and make the stuffing himself!

Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 cup chopped onion
  2. 1/2 cup chopped celery
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1/4 cup hard butter
  5. 2/3 cup chopped cranberries
  6. 1/2 grated apple
  7. 5 cups bread squares
  8. 1 tbsp brown sugar
  9. 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  10. 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  11. 1/8 tsp allspice
  12. 1/8 tsp cayenne
  13. 1/2 tsp salt
  14. 1/8 tsp pepper
  15. 1 tbsp apple juice
  16. 2 tbsp melted butter

 

Instructions:

Saute onion, celery and garlic in butter in a large frying pan until the onion is soft. Remove from heat.

Add ingredients 5 through 14 and mix well. Add enough apple juice until the stuffing is moist and holds together when squeezed. Stuff your turkey loosely.

He did a good job! The stuffing looked nice and tasted good, although a little different than any I have had before. Eric wasn’t crazy about the apple flavour in his stuffing, but I didn’t mind at all. I will definitely let him make it again!
