Turkey stuffing for those of us who used to hate stuffing.  I started making this dressing many years ago and it’s always been a hit.  Can be prepared the day before and then baked with Turkey the next day.   For a vegetarian version use Knorrs vegetable cubes prepared in water to replace chicken broth. Rice Mixture: 1 cup unsalted butter 1/2 cup mild onions; chopped into small pieces 1/2 cup celery; chopped into small pieces 1 cup Basamati rice 1 1/2 cup chicken broth 1 pinch saffron; optional 1 teaspoon ground sea salt; or to taste 1/2 teaspoon Cavendars Greek Spice; or substitute poultry seasoning Read More →
