Sad, Sad Stuffing (C)

April 10, 2006 at 8:32 pm (F (0 stars, inedible), My brain)

After I had jaw surgery my absolute favorite thing to eat was stuffing and gravy…. blended. But even though I love stuffing, blended or not, I unfortunately have no idea how to make it. I tried improvising.

I used Ezekiel bread and celery and onions, poultry seasoning as well as added thyme and savory, dried cranberries and an apple, and a cup of vegetable broth. It was obviously too much broth because it was kind of soggy. In addition, it :

  1. didn’t have enough stuffing “flavor”
  2. was too greasy tasting
  3. didn’t hold together at all
  4. had about a million calories for what I think of as a normal serving, about 1/4 of a cast-iron pan.

Clearly this is an ongoing project.
