It's the start of a great day in the Mojave desert. We should hit 70 for a high, with a light breeze.

TOTD: Stuffing, do you make your own or open a box? If you use a mix, what brand is the best?

I have heard alot of comments on the television about how good the Pepperidge Farm dressing is. Not sure if I've had it before or not.

I bought a couple boxes of Stove Top on sale last week. I will use it for a non-Thanksgiving meal, as someone else will be cooking on Thursday.

I had a friend that made pretty good stuffing with day old bread. But once in a while I think she put too much sage in it.

Apricots in stuffing sounds pretty good.

Apricots in stuffing sounds pretty good.

This is pretty much the recipe we use...


* 1 cup diced dried apricot
* 1 1/2 cups Grand Marnier
* turkey liver (extremely optional)
* turkey heart (extremely optional)
* 1 cup unsalted butter
* 2 cups coarsely chopped celery
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 1 lb bulk pork sausage
* 1 lb herb stuffing mix
* 1 cup slivered almond
* 2 cups rich chicken broth
* 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
* salt & freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1.
Place the apricots and 1 cup of the Grand Marnier in a small saucepan. Heat to boiling. Remove from heat and set aside. (If you simply must, simmer the giblets in a small saucepan covered with water for 5 minutes. When cool, remove and finely dice, discarding the liquid.).
2.
Melt Ĺ cup of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the celery and onion and saute for 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
3.
In the same skillet, cook the sausage, crumbling it with a fork, until itís no longer pink. Remove from heat and add to the celery & onion mixture.
4.
Add the stuffing mix, apricots with the liquid, the almonds (and the optional giblets.) Stir to combine.
5.
Heat the remaining 1/2 cup butter and chicken stock just until the butter melts. Pour over the stuffing mixture and add the remaining 1/2 cup of Grand Marnier. Stir well to moisten the stuffing, adding the thyme, salt and pepper to taste.

For each box of stuffing get one can sliced peaches. Use the liquid in the can as part of the water called for in the recipe. Bring the wate rwith the peaches to a boil and then add the mix. If you do not like it, find me and I'll eat it for you.

I'm not making the stuffing this year, but when I do it's homemade with onions, celery, apples, and..... sausage!

Sounds like my version of stuffing (but I call it dressing). We've had the stuffing vs dressing debate here before. I lost, so stuffing it is. :D

I usually also add fresh sliced mushrooms. SR used to complain when I'd put the apples in, but I think he's converted or at least stop griping about it. :p

I'm making the stuffing this year. I'm a Thanksgiving Dinner virgin so of course, I'm sticking with the basics this year. Nothing too fancy or off the beaten path. Don't want to get too adventurous my first time. :p

Mom has always used Mrs. Cubbison's stuffing so I too shall do the same.

I call it dressing too.

I make cornbread the day before.

Then I take either a chicken or a small pork roast and boil it until it is tender. I take out the meat and strain the broth.

Then I crumble the cornbread in a bowl and mix with the chicken or pork broth until it is soupy. To this I add diced onion and celery (to taste) and salt, pepper and sage. I also add about three or four raw eggs.

Mix it up really good and pour it in a greased 13 X 9 baking pan at 350 until it is done.

If you like you can add the de-boned and cut-up pork or chicken to the mixture before baking.

The mixed dressing should be soupy but not watery.

I know its confusing. most laptops require 18-20 volts DC going into them. That feeds into an internal power supply that charges the lithium Ion smart battery and converts to 5 volts and 12 volts to run the components.

Nothing to debate. Stuffing goes into the bird; dressing is done separately from it. I prefer the latter; inside the bird it drags out the cooking time until the white meat is overdone, and the stuffing gets too soggy.
