Great Stuffing Recipe for Thanksgiving!

Daylight is shorter, cold winds are blowing; and it is time to give Thanks with friends and family! 

Last year I shared my favorite Thanksgiving Recipe "Yams with Praline" and the link will take you to that post if you missed it. But I wanted to share one more with you. 

One thing you must have on your Thanksgiving table is stuffing (or do you call it Dressing??). I mean who doesn't like to stuff themselves on stuffing! Well here is a twist for your stuffing this year. Garlic and Granny Smith Apples! SO YUMMY!   





Dressing with Roasted Garlic Apples


1 Cup onion, diced

1 Cup celery, diced

1 Cup Granny Smith apples, diced

1/4 cup shallots, minced

2 TBLS butter

2 Cups hearty chicken stock

2 TBLS roasted garlic puree (roast garlic bulb in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until softened, peel and mash)

1/2 tsp chopped fresh thyme, stems removed

1 TBLS chopped fresh chives

1 TBLS chopped fresh basil

4 cups died white bread croutons, toasted

Salt and fresh ground pepper

In Large skillet over medium heat, saute onions, celery, apples and shallots in 2 TBLS butter until tender. Add 2 cups chicken stock and simmer until liquid is reduced by half. Add garlic and herbs. Stir in croutons. Serve immediately or put in baking dish and bake at 350 degrees until crunchy. Serves 8. 


I made my stuffing ahead of time (first thing in the morning) and baked it prior to the the meal. Oh My Gosh It Is Good!


Many blessings to you this Thanksgiving season and don't forget to give thanks every day no matter what your circumstances.
