1. Traditional Stuffing Mix
Let’s start our list with a recipe for traditional stuffing. Sometimes, you don’t need a bunch of fancy ingredients to create a mouthwatering stuffing that compliments the turkey.
1-sourdough loaf, left out overnight to stale, crushed into breadcrumbs.
½-cup grass-fed butter.
2-cups onion, sliced.
1-cup celery, chopped.
2-teaspoons sage, chopped
2-teaspoons thyme, chopped.
3-cups chicken stock.
Crushed Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper.
Preheat the oven to 350F and prepare 2-loaf tins with wax paper. Place a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the celery and onion – cook, until soft for 5-minutes. Transfer the contents of the skillet into a large mixing bowl and add the thyme, sage, and breadcrumbs.
Add enough of the stock to moisten the bread, toss in a pinch of salt and pepper – Mix until well-combined. Add the stuffing mix to the loaf tins and bake in the oven for 30-minutes until the top browns.
