Lost stuffing recipe

chefMolnar Nov 19, 2010 05:36 AM

During the last few years I have made a stuffing recipe (technically a dressing, since I put it in a baking dish) that had winter squash (butternut, I think), fresh cranberries, hazelnuts, and other stuff. But I have not been able to find the recipe this year. It may have appeared in the Times or Epicurious, but I haven't been able to find it with searches. Google comes up with a flood of pages, but nothing like that exact recipe. Does anyone remember seeing this? Thanks!

    OK, I found it! It's a Times recipe from 2006. For some reason I wasn't using the right search criteria at the Times website.


    By the way, it's a great recipe. What would you say to drizzling bourbon instead of maple syrup on it--too strong for the other ingredients?

      Looks like a very good dish. I'd have some reservations about the maple syrup/honey ingredients but I admit that unless I try it I won't know how it influences the flavor of the final dish.
      I might replace the maple syrup/honey with a mixture of browned butter and just a splash of bourbon with a pinch of sugar. Gotta be careful with the bourbon though; it tends to overwhelm the other ingredients if too much gets into the mix.
      Might even try a mixture of browned butter, Scotch and Drambuie.

        I would think you'd need at least a little sugar/syrup to cut the tartness of the cranberries, but I would think a small addition of bourbon wouldn't hurt. It looks interesting for sure!

        Will this help?

          It isn't the same one (see below) but it certainly sounds like it's worth trying. Thanks for the link (and feel free to weigh in on the Bourbon issue in my other post).
