Stuffing is the flavorful side dish that one sees at every traditional Thanksgiving dinner, whether you make it on top of the stove or stuff it into the turkey just prior to roasting, stuffing is a must have at any Thanksgiving feast. This recipe is simple and easy to adjust to suit your needs and tastes.
3/4 cup butter
2 1/2 cups chopped onions
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup mushrooms
1 cup of pecan halves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
10 cups of seasoned croutons
5 cups of chicken broth
In a large frying pan, melt butter over a medium heat. Saute onions, mushrooms, and celery. Do so until celery is soft. Add in all of your seasonings and a cup of chicken broth to de-glaze the pan.
Get out a large bowl and add your sauteed vegetables to it.
Add in your croutons,pecan halves and add in the rest of your chicken broth. Allow enough time for the croutons to absorb the broth and veggies and become softened.
Next you will then stuff the turkey at both ends with this mixture.
Do this just prior to roasting your turkey, as this is unsafe. Never stuff your bird well in advance this should be the last step before placing the bird into your oven.
