I'm feeling stuffed
And it is not even Thanksgiving day yet. The ingredients for a favorite of ours, stuffing, is shown above. The commercial bread stuffing is augmented with the following: Onion and celery for aromatic flavors, apple (Granny Smith) for a hint of sweetness, sausage (pork in our case, but a good turkey sausage can be subbed), and butter. The apple cider is added to the mixture before baking for moistness. That's it! We don't stuff the bird with this, we add to the inside an apple, onion and celery for flavor before roasting. I love the smell of onions and celery cooking in butter on Thanksgiving morn.
I ought to lose weight, but not tomorrow...
