Ingredients

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Pound plain challah cut into 1/2 cubes
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Pounds chopped yellow onions
  • 1/2 Cup chopped celery stalk
  • 1 Teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/2 Cup chopped parsley
  • 4 Cups vegetable stock

Directions

Preheat oven to 400.

Spread challah cubes in single layer in a large baking pan.  Bake, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 10 minutes.  Transfer to a large bowl.  In a large, heavy frying pan over medium high heat, melt butter.  When hot, add the onion and celery and cook, stirring occasionally until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.  Transfer onion and celery to bread cubes.  Add stock( my mom always added warm stock), a little at a time until the bread is completely moistened, but not mushy.  Add ground thyme, parsley and salt and pepper.  I do not add the egg until I have the seasonings just right.  Mix in egg and stir to combine.

Fill the cavities of the turkey with stuffing and truss.

Butter 6 large or 12 standard muffin tins.  Use an ice cream scoop to fill and mound up the stuffing in the muffin tins.   Bake until set and crisp on top; 15-20 mins.  Everyone gets their own individual crispy Stuffing Muffin!

Caramelized Onion Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Caramelized Onion Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
