On the heels of my last post about my thanksgiving favorites, I worked on recreating my favorite Thanksgiving stuffing for you. I have used this recipe, or something very close to it, for years but hadn't written down how I do it. Something about the holiday rush and coming up with things on the fly while at my in-law's house made it difficult to write down!
But I wanted to get this down on paper this year - it is so delicious, and pairs so well with other Thanksgiving food. I don't know about you, but my favorite food before SCD was stuffing and pumpkin pie! (I was kind of a carb aficionado...)
When I make a new recipe for the SCD, my goal is to recreate something that is so close to what I used to love that it's hard to tell the difference. So today I tested it on my boys, and was very happy to see that they loved it. I asked them how close it was to the regular stuffing they usually eat, and my middle son said, "It tastes exactly the same!" Ah....that's what I want to hear!
To start off the recipe, make Easy Sandwich Bread. You can do this way ahead of time if you'd like, cutting down on work on the big day. Freeze or refrigerate and pull out for this recipe. If you make the stuffing shortly before eating, it will be on the drier side (which I prefer). If you like your stuffing more moist, make it at the beginning of your preparations and you could even add a little turkey juice to it at the end before serving.
Erin's Favorite Thanksgiving Stuffing
5 pieces of Easy Sandwich Bread
3 Tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery (about 2 stalks)
1 Tablespoon sage
salt & pepper to taste
Over medium heat, melt butter in a large pan. Add onion and sauté for a few minutes, until starting to brown, stirring occasionally. Add celery and sauté with the onions for a few more minutes. Add sage and sprinkle with salt and pepper. When the onions and celery are still a little crunchy, remove from heat.
Meanwhile, toast Easy Sandwich Bread and then cube. Pour over the onion, celery, and sage mixture and gently stir. If you prefer a more moist stuffing, add a little turkey juice when it is fully cooked.
So, there it is! I hope it hits the spot for you and your loved ones!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!
