Stuffing for Two – As Thanksgiving Day Draws Near – Traditional Turkey and Stuffing Comes to Mind – We Will Go Out with Friends to a Restaurant – But at Home Today Traditional Stuffing Was on the Menu –

Stuffing

Stuffing would usually be scooped into the cavity of a turnkey or into a baking dish for Thanksgiving Day, but today I baked it in these two mini-casserole dishes instead. We enjoyed a meal with stuffing on the side.

Stuffing 4Stuffing 3This is an easy dish to prepare. Ingredients are in the photo except a third slice of Udi’s gluten-free bread and sage.

Cook the chopped celery, onion, and minced garlic in butter until the onions are translucent. Toast and slice the bread into cubes. Put the bread cubes in a mixing bowl. Add the spices (I used rosemary, thyme, and sage, but you may use spices you like), salt and pepper, and one or two eggs. Moisten with chicken stock.

Stir it together and scoop it into a baking dish. I put a dab of butter on top to encourage a brown finish. I used two small baking dishes, one for Steve and one for me.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until sizzling and brown on top.

NOTE: This stuffing is excellent made with biscuits cut into cubes (gluten-free for me) instead of cubed bread.

StuffingWe will dine at a restaurant with a group of our friends on Thanksgiving Day. Steve and I have family in different states on the East Coast. My sister is here but she and her husband are away this year. We will not be eating the traditional meal on Thanksgiving, but we had a taste of it today.

    This looks good! I absolutely love stuffing but it doesn’t go with my reduced carb eating. I think I’ll make an exception for Thanksgiving, though 🙂

  4. Now, this is what I need to try, there only being two folk at my house. Food can really go to waste when you’re cooking as if the the folk who used to live with you no longer aren’t.

    • I understand. It’s really easier to cook for only two. Recipes ingredients need to be reduced. I am allergic to gluten, so I must substitute gluten-free flour for wheat flour, but I’m learning how to do that, also. Blessings to you…
