My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Stuffing a la Gourmet

Well, I guess it's time I started thinking about Thanksgiving dinner. Gathering up old recipes, looking for new ones I want to try. Normally I don't change the basics, but sometimes I will mess around with the stuffing and side dishes. Actually this is an old recipe, (1968) that I haven't made for a few years. This is also excellent with roasted chicken and roast loin of pork.

Let's go see Amy at A Little Nosh and see what is going on.

You can stuff the turkey or bake the stuffing in a casserole.

Stuffing a la Gourmet
6-8 servings approx.
print recipe

1 onion chopped
1 apple chopped
1/2 cup seedless grapes
1 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 carrot chopped
1/2 pound ground pork or sweet Italian sausage
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
2 cups toasted bread cubes
1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
1/4 pound (1 stick) butter
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 cup Grand Mariner
Enough chicken broth to make a moist stuffing

Mix well and stuff the turkey.

If baking outside the turkey; lightly brown the ground pork in a large skillet; add butter and saute onion, apple,carrot and celery, just until limp, not browned; add spices, grapes and walnuts. Add remaining ingredients and toss with bread cubes. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.
