At Thanksgiving time, we love our turkey. And what's a Thanksgiving turkey dinner without stuffing? We've been warned in recent years, however, not to actually stuff the turkey with stuffing, because what if the inner cavity doesn't reach a high enough temperature and the stuffing isn't safe to eat because of salmonella?
The last thing anyone wants is for dinner guests to be sick after eating a big meal at our house. Avoid all of the worry with VitaClay-- it makes a mean stuffing, or "dressing," and nobody gets sick! Win-win!
- 3 T butter
- 2 cups broth
- 2 large onions, diced
- 16 oz mushrooms, sliced
- 4-5 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 loaf of stale french or sourdough bread, chopped into small cubes
- 1-2 t sea salt
- Pepper, to taste
- 1-2 t your favorite no-salt seasoning mix
- Using the butter, stir fry all of the veggies for 3-5 minutes in a medium-heat pan.
- Pour ¼ cup broth into the bottom of the VitaClay pot.
- Mix the rest of the broth with the veggies, bread, salt & pepper, and spices.
- Load everything into the VitaClay pot.
- Program on “stew” setting for 30 minutes.
Another option is to stuff the turkey as usual, then pull out the stuffing and throw it in VitaClay on “reheat” while you get the turkey ready. (Just make sure there’s a little bit of liquid at the bottom of the pot so it doesn’t dry out, which can sometimes cause the risk of a cracked pot).
