Homemade stuffing (dressing) can be used for a variety of purposes. Turkey and chicken are not complete without stuffing. I recently made stuffed pork chops using this recipe, and it was out of this world. It can also be used with vegetable to create dishes such as stuffed peppers. This recipe uses bread crumbs, but you can certainly use day old bread if you have the time. You can also add some chopped celery to the recipe if you are so inclined. As with any recipe, you can adjust the seasoning according to your taste.
- 1 cup bread cumbs
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 1 thyme
- 1 1/2 tsp sage
- salt and pepper
- Over a medium heat, add the butter to a pan and allow it to melt. Add in the onions and fry them until they are translucent and fragrant.
- Reduce the heat to medium low and place in the breadcrumbs, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper. Fry until the breadcrumbs begin to brown. The degree to which you brown them is a matter of personal preference. In total it should take 3 to 4 minutes.
- Add the milk and the egg. Stir the dressing continuously for another minute or two.
- Remove the stuffing from the burner, place it in a bowl, and use it for the desired application.
