Out of bird stuffing

Unread postby comish » Mon Nov 16, 2009 7:08 pm

Seems like there is some culinary expertise out there. Anybody have a good out-of-bird stuffing recipe for T-Giving? Thanks in advance!

I am going to give this a try. Any tips to make sure it turns out correct?

Did you use fresh chorizo. I unfortunatly only found some smoked chorizo at the store. I grabbed some fresh dutch sausage as a possible substitute. I was going nuts trying to find the manchego cheese. I did eventually find the only chunk of it in the store.

Based on what I've observed... ; )

1) We've only used fresh bulk chorizo. Too late for this now, but if you're in the Cleveland area, that's an easy find at the West Side Market (same for the Manchego, and you'd get it there for much less than I'd guess you found it for).

2) Only tip I'd have is to make sure you don't skimp on the bread. Get a good french baguette like he says. It makes such a huge difference.

Thanks, Goo, for posting the recipe. In the end I made the cherizo stuffing.

Hoo Doo, THANKS..the stuffing was awesome and made me look like a gosh darn iron chef. People kept hammering at it before we could even get it to the table.

2 things I changed or would do differently:
I hate celery in my stuffing so I used celery salt instead
2 lemons was TOO MUCH. At times the lemon taste overpowered the dish. I will use one next time.

THANKS AGAIN!

ps...the cherizo and the manchiago cheese were both at my local Heinens

I ended up doing both the chorizo and trhe brussel sprouts recipes.

The chorizo stuff was very good. I agree with less lemon as well.

The brussel sprouts were good but they surprised me. When I got done with the recipe I had basically learned how to make sour kraut. I wasn't expecting that. I'll use less lemon here as well next time.

Seems like the right time of the year to bring this back to the top.

I plan to do these two recipes again this year. Very tasty.

I would have been kicked out of my own house on Thanksgiving if I didn't make the stuffing again.

Like I said above...I'll go with less lemon zest this time.

Instead of two lemons, I used one...the stuffing was AWESOME, and as I said above, will now be a family T-Giving tradition.

Yep, went the same way this year. Alot less lemon, some very fresh chorizo, and a happy house.

Made some other stuffing for my sudo vegaterian sister, whom does eat fish. Got a seafood stuffing recipe by watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Made her a baked stuffed lobster. Crushed Ritz crackers never tasted so good.

I think this is the recipe we use. Taste the cream/chipotle before putting it all together with the sweet potatoes. I think we may have used twice the chipotle called for to give it a little more kick. It's mighty tasty.

Very good way to do the sweet potatoes. They went over well.
