This recipe uses elegant shelled French chestnuts and rich brioche bread to create an indulgent, flavorful stuffing that's for more than just stuffing the bird on Thanksgiving.
* French shelled chesnuts are available at TheFrenchyBee.com.
In a large pot, boil the chestnuts in salted water until soft. Drain and mash, using a potato ricer.
In a large sauce pan, combine the mashed chestnuts, salt and pepper, cream, stock, brioche, sage, and maple syrup and stir well over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Season again to taste. Serve hot.
