Stuffing -

  • Loaf of bread OR bag of stuffing bread

  • 1 Apple

  • 2 onions

  • 3 cloves of garlic

  • Handful of white mushrooms

  • Vegetable Stock

Either buy a bag of pre cut stuffing bread or purchase an unsliced loaf of bread to make your own. You can either cut the bread into cubes and leave out over night to dry out OR if you are short on time, cube the bread, place on a baking sheet, lightly coat with olive oil and throw in the over for 10-15 minutes at 400F or until light brown - you are making a crouton

  2. Dice 2 onions

  5. Chop 3 cloves of garlic.

  6. Sautee onions, mushrooms, apple and garlic in a pot.

  8. Place baked bread in baking pan - we used a large glass pan. Take a cup of the bread and place it to the side.

  9. Once the ingredients in the pot are combined, pour over the bread and mix together. The consistency should be like meatloaf. If it's too dry, add more stock. If it's too wet, add the cup of unused bread to help soak up some liquid.

  10. Add seasoning of choice - we used Cavendars Greek Seasoning
