A different stuffing for Thanksgiving?
I would love to make something not so typical. Any great recipes?
here you go...
2 1/4 cups chicken stock (+more to liking if too dry)
1/4 cup wild rice
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
2 cups diced celery
1 cup chopped onion
4 cups homemade or bought corn bread stuffing mix
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
bunch of dried cranberries to liking
combine the chicken stock and the wild rice in saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender.
In a large skillet melt the butter. Add mushrooms, celery and onion, cooking until soft.
In a large bowl mix the cornbread stuffing and poultry seasoning. Add rice and vegetables, mix well. Bake in oven (I can't remember temp/time, just refer to any stuffing recipe) I added more chicken stock to make it less dry, winging it until I liked the consistency.
I'm not sure what's considered not so typical; it seems like every region has a different idea of stuffing, but this one is my favorite and the rest of my family thought it was not so traditional... http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jht... Martha has some other ones that sound good too, including one with grapes and wild rice!
Last year I made one with marinated artichoke hearts, and assorted roasted veggies. The stuffing itself was made with ciabatta bread. Very interesting - very Italian.
