Ruby Tuesday - Feeling stuffed?

(This is an edited repost from two years ago. Not to worry, tradition reigns on Thanksgiving since we make it the same way every year...)
Ruby Tuesday is just in time for turkey day.


The ingredients for a favorite of ours, stuffing, are 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, turkey a fine substitute), 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 baking. I love the smell of onions, celery and apples cooking in butter on Thanksgiving morn. A wonderful aroma throughout the house. I should lose weight...but not this week!

I recently made a dish that used apples and onions (and garlic) sauteed together as a topping for wild rice. It's very subtle but delicious - and very healthy too.

Happy Wednesday :)

Dear Ralph,
This is what I love about the Ruby Tuesday blogging, I'm learning a lot about people's lives, countries and traditions.
Even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving at all, I've learned a lot about it, about the Americans, and even got some tasty recipes and great photos as well.
Great rerun.

bj said...

Oh, Ralph..you are so cute...
no, holidays is NOT the time to lose weight!! lol

I was thinking as I came over that you would probably laugh that my rubies were FOOD....AGAIN....so I was happy to see your post is about food, too. haahha....And, my favorite of all the Thanksgiving foods, DRESSING (as we call it here in West Texas..)
Now, your recipe is sounding very good. I just may add apples and cider to my dressing this year. ummm. Do you make it...or Patti?
If I don't get another chance...
I hope you and the family have the best Thanksgiving, EVER.

Ralph! the smells of Thanksgiving are oh so good. We don't mess with Thanksgiving traditions around here either. The food must always remain the same. You can add new if all the old dishes are in tact :0)
A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
And in response to your comment...it is very early for snow here in Seattle. We are really in for it!
