Now that we have officially kicked off the holiday season, I would like to introduce you to the most fabulous recipe for Thanksgiving Stuffing with a Twist!
Personally, I have never been a fan of stuffing. I have always felt that it’s either a glob of soggy, seasoned bread or a flavorless dry brink and neither one appeals to me.
However, this Thanksgiving stuffing is different. In my opinion, it’s neither too dry or too moist, plus it has a twist! It’s loaded with BACON!!! Yes! B.A.C.O.N! My husband says that this recipe for Thanksgiving Stuffing with a Twist was created with testosterone in mind!!! Yep! I agree with him.
TIP: I always like to do as many things as I can the day before hosting a party. Therefore I cooked some turkey in my slow cooker the day before assembling the stuffing. Since I knew that I didn’t have enough giblets to make 3 1/2 to 4 cups of chopped turkey, I opted to buy a couple extra fresh turkey legs and cooked them with the giblets.
While the turkey was cooking I also pan-fried half an onion with 2 pounds of bacon I had chopped into small pieces. After it had finished cooking I drained off the excess fat. Now the turkey, bacon, and broth were ready to go the next day when it was time to assemble the stuffing. All I needed to do was warm up the broth a little before tossing everything together.
It’s actually easy to modify this recipe to be a gluten free stuffing. (Be sure to check the recipe card to see how.) Looking for gluten-free turkey? Click to read about gluten-free Butterball turkeys.
In addition, feel free to add other yummy ingredients such as raisins, dried cranberries, chopped apples, pecans, and oysters. In place of stuffing mix, you can also use crumbled seasoned cornbread or toasted day-old bread that has been seasoned with 2 teaspoons thyme leaves, 1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning and 1 teaspoon seasoning salt.
Just look at this yummy Thanksgiving Stuffing with a Twist that’s straight out of the oven! Delish!
Because this stuffing is jam-packed with so many flavors, I predict it will probably be a recipe you’ll want to hang on to.
